It never ends

I should have known from the fact that I have at least two of every crochet hook size known to man that knitting would be the same way. I keep having to go get new needles for the projects I want to do. I was all ready to start a new project, and I have the size 10 DPNs needed, and I have a size 10 circular needle - but it's 29" or something like that and I need a 16". Grr.

I did finish my felted hat today. I gave up a bit early - only 5 cycles in our front loader before I decided I didn't care that you could still sort of see the stitching. I think it looks awesome and is set up on a soccer ball being shaped. :) I'll take pictures later when it is dry. Yay! :) My first knit project that is for myself!

I wish my head would stop hurting, and helping my mom finish packing tomorrow won't help matters.

I think I just need to go to bed. *laugh*

i plunked down $40 or so on a set of interchangeable circs, and i'm never looking back!
i LOVE that i now have every size imaginable {well, ok, i know they make TEENY TINY ones that i don't have, or SUPER long ones...} all in one handy little box.

i got the denise set, but they're not for everyone, as they have flexible plastic tips. knitpicks has wooden and metal sets that i hear good things about, too.

Does it have all of the lengths for the 'in between' so that you don't have to buy multiple sets?

BTW - In finishing my hat, I was faced with the 'five DPN' situation that so scared me. You're right. It isn't so bad since you are only working one at a time. *laugh* It just LOOKS so scary!

yay for conquering dpns! LOL!

the denise set that i have, i think has the most lengths of inner cables. i got mine on ebay, but you can buy them direct - and they even have a pink set that donates to breast cancer research!
