I took a needle class yesterday.  I made this flower at the class.  It supposes to be a pin, but I made it too big!!

Wow.  You definately have a talent for form and color.  It's so delicate!  I think delicate things are harder to make than big fat solid things.  GREAT JOB on your very first NF!  I look forward to seeing more.

thanks for the compliment.

I have a question, I am planning to buy some needles, but I have no idea what to buy.  Should I buy the single needle, needles with handle or clover needles? 

Thanks

I buy sets of needles and just try different needles until I find the one I like.  I use a single needle for most of my projects.  But, I have used a tool where I can have 5 needles at once.  I use that tool when I have a big project.  It is good for starting.  It helps to dense it down faster.  Single and smaller pointed needles are better for detail work.  I have found that different wools change what needle will work best.  So, I just switch around until it works like I want.

Thanks again
