Great job!  What kind of stitch did you use?  Stockinette?  Garter?

If I have my vocabulary is correct..I just knitt in one side and purls at the other...Simple simple. The magic is the needles...and if you want a little BAM..you can always use a "fency shemsy" yarn! Cheesy

Looks great, very lacy and feminine.

I love my Speed Stix and use them a lot for quick afghans and scarves that combine several different kinds of yarns. They are a bit like knitting with telephone poles (and they do seem to prompt a lot of *ahem* jokes from non-knitters), but they are fun!

Thanks for the comment I am so LOL... I hear you about the jokes....The funny looks at the bus station are the best..you just can hear them thinking "What the hell ??!"
I am so in love with these needles...I am even thinking to supersize some on the circular ones... Grin

I bought some of these sticks a while back... haven't knitted in a while though due to work and moving but I think I shall get the big sticks back out and get to work :-) I only ever made scarves with mine, which I loved, though I think I will try a blanket this time as the weather channel has just informed me of snow headed this way...

This was my very first project working with the stix. Scarves are a safe project for a try out on a new pair of needles  Smiley. I bet you would be able to make a lovely blanket with these babies...hey if you have Michael's near you...they are having a good sale on yarns. I got a few samples today...just a few skeins for cheap to warm up the hand Smiley. Let me know about the project...I would love to follow it.
