See those shiny double pointed needles. They are my most favorite, most used knitting tool. I’m sure that sounds crazy to some but we, my size 1 1/2 Skacel metal dpns have spent many hours together knitting socks. There were those blanket squares too but I try to forget that they exist and that the blanket is unfinished.
These dpns have traveled for vacations. We particularly enjoyed Disney World. They’ve kept me company while I’ve knit through good times and bad and even worse. They have been there for births, an adoption and multiple deaths. They have witnessed a lot.
I remember the day I bought them at a small yarn shop in Maine. They were the only set of the size I needed and at the time I thought they were expensive. But now I know they are priceless.
