Oh I know it starts innocently enough.. it always does. I bought some Knitpick options, I'm sure you all remember that. My only beef with them? No 16 inch size (maybe because the needles are 5 inches long but I digress...). So when one of my cords had a wonky falling out problem, I emailed them and they sent me out a new set. OK they are still in transit, I blame Canada Post. Anyhoo I decided to tinker up my own short set with the broken cable. Meh at best they are. The needles really are too long to be a comfortable 16 inches. Oh well I pulled out my trusty Denise's. Kept knitting.
Yesterday I go into work (Oh! I work Thursdays now too!) and start looking (just looking mind you) at the 16 inch Addi's. They look a lot shorter than my Denise ones. How can that be you ask? Isn't 16 inches 16 inches? You'd think so right?
NOPE. ARGH. Now I am the proud owner of 3 pairs of 16 inch Addis. I'da bought more but we didn't have all the sizes I wanted. No surprise.. they will ALL be mine soon. Oh ho yes.. they will be mine. *
This Blue Sky Worsted is quite simply.. decadent. No real better words come to mind without making me sound a screamy fan girl. All the cameras in the house have mysteriously gone missing so I still can't show you progress.. but its only needing a sleeve and a bit. Those Addi's sure help with the sleeveage. You'll see. Soon.
Since I can't find that damn camera, I'll leave you with a picture of my favorite ornament for our wacky techno tree:
* They are a supplement ok? My Knitpicks are still the shiz, but I NEED SHORT ONES TOO OK? I DON'T WANT TO DISCRIMINATE ON THE BASIS OF SIZE. omg they rok.
PS Feel better soon Morgan, Amy and Ookpik! xoxoxo!
Oh yeah.. I have an enormous disaster to talk about, but its still a little fresh. It also needs pictures to convey the full (pun there) horror of it. I felt sick for hours about it. Now its kinda funny...
