I sat down to knit the multi-colored cowl with the needles that came with the yarn (a Darn Good Yarn monthly subscription box). The purple straight needles on the left side of the picture. The points are so long I found the needles impossible to use. I didn't feel like getting up (I did have catsonlap) so I reached into my knitting bag for my current project (Zombie Love Shawl on ravelry, a great pattern) and used those needles. Turns out they are size 10 and the project called for size 8. Oh well, the cowl is completed now, too bad. So I'm back to finishing the Zombie Love Shawl. :)
It’s funny how we don’t like to move a-sleeping kitty if we can avoid it. Boy they certainly have us wrapped around their paws😻
Definitely cannot move the cat!!!
Definitely a point on those needles.
I love this -- I will now explain that I can't do this or that due to my diagnosed case of catsonlap. No cure has been discovered yet, but researchers will struggle on!
"I'd love to join you, but my catsonlap is flaring up, what a shame, please carry on without me . . ."
And that you made an artistic decision due to the malady just goes to show how resilient we sufferers can be!
Man, those are pointy. Are they lace needles?
You're a HOOT. Love the way you think outside the box. AND catsonthelap is a definite priority.
I had never seen needles with points that long!
Catsonlap take priority.
Those are some very pointy needles. I could have used them tonight while doing a twisted rib stitch using sock yarn:-)
I sat down to knit the multi-colored cowl with the... (
Wow, that is some long needles tips!
Is there a brand name on those super-pointy needles? They look lethal!
Looks good cats are always getting their own way wish I had one to cuddle
I want those needles! Love the cat on the lap.
I would love those needles! Yes, never move the cat
DOF (dog on feet) has a similar lack of cure. I sure hope they never find one. Animal love trumps everything!
