Baa Hurrah that is. I received a wonderful set of size 10.5 knitting needles in the PhatFiber box last week. Pointy tips and smoothed to a mirror like sheen. When I checked out the site to see what else Beth had to offer, I found she takes custom orders, for needles up to size 35 and up to 36” long.
Well, I had been intrigued by the video going around of Rachel John and her Extreme Knitting, and so I emailed and asked for a quote.
I was very pleased to find out that a pair of straights in size 35, 32” long, would only cost $16, and a set of 5 double points would be a little more, so I placed my order.
In the meantime, I made my yarn:
I-cord on one of those hand spool knitters, made so far with about 12 ounces of mill end acrylic.
And today the box arrived (yeah, I know you can see both sets of needles in the picture above, but still…)
It was huge. And it gave me a giggle when Marty walked in the door box first.
And the double points:
With the original 10.5 next to them for comparison.
And the straights (full picture later when they are in use)
I think I need a bigger yarn.
