Back in January i was browsing knitting websites. lots of patterns, hats, toys, leg warmers, random things to knit. so many projects :)
but had made Blaise a promise not to start something new until the scarf was finished.
learning a technique wouldn't count as making something new so i decided to learn how to use double-pointed needles (DP).
so 4 needles, 3 containing stitches and one working needles. in my reading i had discovered that the most common newbie frustration was that you get a ladder or a loosening of stitches when you switch from one needle to the next. so borrowed a set of DPs from Rachel, grabbed a ball of wool and gave it a go.
i'm either totally lucky or i have a natural talent for DP needle work, not a gap or ladder to be seen.
