Just in case you wondered, I still hate Crystal Palace needles.
The points are pretty pointy, but boy, do the joins ever suck! Why is it that needle manufacturers can’t seem to make a needle with a decent join?
I moved the Inky Dinky onto a Holz & Stein rosewood needle from the Crystal Palace needle I was using. The Crystal Palace join was getting on my last available nerve.
Oh, and I got the Bryspun circular I ordered on Friday. I gotta say, not impressed.
The point is not as good as my rosewood needle.
And the join is just weird.
So Inky Dinky will stay on the rosewood needle. The only problem with that is that the color of the needle makes it a bit difficult to see the yarn. But the join is pretty good.
I stopped by Knit Happens yesterday afternoon for the first time in several weeks. And there waiting for me was a little surprise, from Jennifer of Major Knitter.
Little shrinky dink tags with my blog button on them. How cute!

Yes, I do get off the couch now and then. But I’m usually moving too fast to be properly photographed!
Except when I’m lying on my knitting bag.
