These are my favorite type of circular needles and I pick them up whenever I stumble across a cheap pair at an estate sale or thrift shop. They're great for lace knitting because the tips are sharp and the joins are smooth...and I don't think I had any this long or in these sizes. I know I've never had any in the original packaging.
Weekly Stash Report
There's a ridiculous amount of new sock yarn headed my way. Nordic Mart has their DROPS sock yarn on sale this month and I've been waiting for another sale. Self striping sock yarn has made me very happy over the past couple of years and if I can knit a pair for $4.60 I'm even happier. So I ordered pretty much all of the pretty colors I didn't get in my first order. And now I'm holding my breath until Monday because I can't wait to hold it in my hands.
It's my first yarn purchase at all in more than three and a half months, and my first big yarn purchase since I can't remember when. If things work out the way they usually do, spending all of my yarn money means those pretty colors I've been eyeing at Knit Picks will go on sale almost immediately...but I'll cross that bridge when/if I get to it.
