On the Needles



Saturday night I started Easy as Pie by Marisa Hernandez downloaded from Ravelry.  My yarn is that gorgeous Admiral Jaggerspun 2/18 wool/silk that I won all those years ago at a knitting retreat. I’m having much better luck with this yarn than I did a month ago. The primary difference is the needles.



I’m using Square Needles by Kollage. These are a size 6.  Surprising, even though they are metal, my hands don’t hurt knitting with them – probably because I’m not holding them as tightly.  I don’t think I’m knitting as tightly, my stitches aren’t falling off the needles and the points are sharp enough to get under the stitches. So far I’m very happy with the needles.

To see what other’s have on their needles, check out the links over at Patchwork Times.

3 Thoughts on “On the Needles

  1. I have one set of square needles and really like them. They are not metal but seem to hang on to the yarn better. I also have some metal needles with just a little tooth to them and they make DPN knitting really easy.

    Interesting-square needles. I’ll have to look into that. Your shawl is nice. I’m looking forward to seeing the finish.

  3. Very interesting to hear about your experience with square needles as I’ve never tried them. Thanks. Your shawl is going to be very nice. Now off to check the link!
