Biggest Needles Ever

My sister is moving to the Great White North and begged me for a cowl for her birthday. She picked it out (super bulky yarn) and picked the pattern.

I didn’t check the needle size. This pattern, cute though it is, uses size 35 needles.

Yep, that wasn’t a typo. US 35 needles. The super bulky yarn is held double.

I think it turned out alright, though, despite the broomsticks for needles and the mad search for the least common circular needle size ever… And it’s certainly WARM.

Time Flies When You’re Sick

Morning sickness, that is. Sprog the third is coming in June, and most things I’ve been working on have taken a break.

All of the hats in the Spindle Hat project are now available in my Ravelry Store. It was fun, but I’m ready to knit something that’s not a hat! Right now, big yarn is on my mind and needles.
