The Rivington Cowl cast on at last week’s Spinning Group has made excellent progress – this mainly due to the fact that I could not put it down in order to do something that I ought to have been doing instead. It’s a lovely thing. I began the edging this afternoon.
I was struggling with my bamboo DPN; it’s just a little too long, is now slightly bowed, and makes the task unwieldy. So I gave in to temptation. I bought myself some of these. Now I am whizzing along.
In a manageable 15cm length and with the usual beautiful finish, these DREAMZ double pointed needles come in a “sock set” and are colour coded and housed in a lovely wee jacquard case. They bring to mind the old game of pickup sticks.
The case is quite impressive. Well stiffened, with a flap that closes with magnetic closures, it includes an internal cloth pocket with velcro fastening.
If you find 15 cm needles a little too short, we have a larger set in a 20 cm needle length. The large set boasts a sixth set of needles, offering a 5mm size.
I really must get back to knitting my cardigan soon but I shall be taking the cowl and its edging to spinning group tomorrow, I think.
