Though Compulsive W might be more accurate.
In the continuation of my quest for the perfect lace knitting needle, I received more needles in the mail yesterday. And I found one that warms my heart.
It is a Boye needle — not a Boye Needlemaster needle, just a Boye circular. This needle.
Look at the point on this bad boy!
And the join is good too!
As you can see from the top photo, my long-suffering Inky Dinky Spider Stole is pressed into service as the needle testing guinea pig. The needle works great with this very fine Suri Alpaca yarn. No catching at the join, and the points are pointy enough to make all those k2togs fairly easy to execute. And the finish isn’t too slippery.
There were some good questions in the comments today, but I’m tired and Lucy wants some Mommy time, so I’ll address them tomorrow. See you then!
