I decided to post about knitting needles, partly because I have no finished projects this week, but also I wanted to take some photos where I could work on the depth of field. They're not quite perfect, but it was interesting experimenting, and some of my first attempts were terrible. Hubby (still calling him that on the blog) was leaning over my shoulder giving me advice.
Today I was out shopping and saw a rack of lovely bamboo knitting needles. They just all looked so nice hanging there, that I couldn't resist buying a pair. There were also some very expensive rosewood needles. I wonder if some needles are more suited to different wools. Does anyone know?
Most of my needles are metal, but I do have a few very old pairs of plastic ones that came from my mum. I think they are really jolly, but every so often one of the needle snaps, I guess from plastic fatigue.
I'm going to give my new needles a try out this evening. What sort of needles do you prefer?
