I am STILL in chicago - although it's a medical trip, I'm having a blast in the windy city - esp today with 50 mph winds. With weather like this, I took a trip down to this AWESOME yarn shop. AND made an amazing discovery.
Anybody knit with joint problems? This little shop carried specialty needles. They are SQUARE instead of round! I was a bit doubtful, but bought them anyways. Now I've been knitting all evening and my fingers don't hurt from it. I think it's because you don't have to grip the needle like a round needle.
Anyways, if you ever see these square needles (mine are double pointed, I don't know if they make others),they are so worth the extra $5!!
Hopefully coming home tomorrow night, I miss my craft room
Will be sitting out for round 64 until I'm feeling better. I'll miss you all!
