#AtTheBench: Swatching with my new US 3 @Knit_Picks fixed circular #rainbowwoodneedles I picked up from @knitlocally. 😁Oh. My. God. These circulars are amazing! So, I've been using acrylic straight needles for a while. I hate the drag they have on every yarn I use. 😩I felt like I was fighting with the needles to make every stitch. But these? The yarn just glides across. The points are sharp enough to get into the smallest stitches for even tension and definition. I love these needles! 😍Now I need the entire #OptionsInterchangeableRainbowWood set!
Oh yes, so about this swatch. I'm working on another layette so this swatch will come in handy for this project and future design projects. 😁Y'all know how much I love #babyhandknits.
Lastly, I watched a #NorwegianPurl tutorial from Staci over at @VeryPinkKnits. Ma'am, thank you. Can I just say how much I love Norwegian purling now?! 😍As a #continentalknitter, purling has always been a thorn in my side. My tension gets tighter and it makes for a not so enjoyable knitting session. But now? My right hand still does the bulk of the work, just like I'm used to from crocheting and purl rows are a breeze. 😌More details to come!
