I have two active WIPs and they couldn’t be more different. The stockinette sock now has a heel. Hopefully I’ll find time to pick up the stitches and knit the gusset decreases today. Or maybe not. I’m still plugging along on the baby blanket. I keep reminding myself that baby will arrive in April whether I’ve finished the blanket or not so I better get moving on it. But here’s the thing, these projects are so different that I have to be in the mood to work on them. I love working on the blanket. The ChiaoGoo lace needles are so nice and pointy. The socks are being knit with Clover bamboo needles. They feel nice in my hands but aren’t particularly pointy so it feels like more work to knit with them. Both projects are easy. It’s just how I feel about the needles that’s slowing things down. How do you like your needles? Pointy or less pointy? Do you prefer wood or metal? As you can guess I really prefer a very point metal needle.
Enjoy your Wednesday!
