A bit of knitting ennui has settled in. Must be the weather. Although, thankfully, it’s not nearly as hot as it is on the West Coast, the heat and humidity do get a bit much after a while. Or maybe it’s my Muse. Yeah, that’s it — she gets cranky in heat and humidity.
(Lucy, on the other hand, is happy to sleep on handknits.)
But . . . it could always be worse. I am exceedingly grateful for electricity and the joy of air-conditioning.
But because my brain seems to be on vacation, you’ll just get some random stuff today.
I just remembered today that I hadn’t posted about the Knitpicks circular needles I got in the mail a few days ago. I bought some of the smaller sizes that are not available in the interchangeable set.
Here is the 3.25mm needle, which I bought in the 32″ length, with an Addi Turbo of the same size. The Knitpicks needle is on the top.
And here is a picture of the join. Again, the Knitpicks needle is on the top.
I really like the Knitpicks needle. The tip is nice and pointy and the join is very smooth.
I put my log cabin blanket on the Knitpicks 3.25mm needle:
Hey, guess what’s on the Addi 3.25mm needle? It’s Keelan!
I haven’t abandoned it — I’ve done a little bit on it for the past couple of nights.
But even though I am knitting it in the comparative comfort of the air-conditioned indoors, it’s not comfortable. It’s simply not great summer knitting.
Mebbe I need to knit another Noni . . .
