Okay, I went to the thrift store and scored a bag of yarn (Penimaid Lainette, ever heard of it
?), a mostly completed knit skirt (it fits!) knitted on size 3 needles, and two size three circular needles.
I can't figure out what brand circs they are and I really like them. They are all metal and the cord is some kind of small coil, but its a smooth coil if that makes sense. The yarn doesn't get caught up on them.
Since the only circs I've ever knit with were clover bamboo, susan bates, and boye I know they aren't those...
Can anyone solve this mystery?
