1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Seeking Opinions on: January 07, 2009 08:42:12 AM
So, I asked for some double pointed needles for Christmas so I could give knitting some socks a try. I ended up getting the Boye Interchangable Needlemaster Kit. I've never used circular needles and the aluminum doesn't bother me, as I use the Boye aluminum crochet hooks.

I'm more of a crocheter and have only recently taken up knitting in the past few months. From what I've read I'll probably need to get dpns anyway.

My question is this: Should I keep the kit or exchange it?

What would you do?



2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Sao Paolo Purse on: November 25, 2008 09:36:46 PM
I saw this purse and absolutely HAD to crochet one! I'm head over heels in love with this purse and am so proud of myself. I hope that you like it. I used Red Heart Soft yarn in Wine and Off White and Naturally Caron Merino Blend in Berry Frappe. I will include a link to the pattern at the bottom of the page.

Voila.....my new purse!!!!

Just a note: I did add a few extra rows to make it a little bigger. 

Thanks for looking, everyone!  Grin
