I've never used interchangeable circular needles, but had my eye on Knitters Pride Karbonz. I took advantage of Webs April sale and bought the deluxe set, 10 pair in sizes 2.5 through 10. So exciting!
I'm using left over yarn from the Doctor Who scarf to make a Doctor Who Baby Surprise Jacket. I'm more or less following the scarf color sequence, but have adjusted the number of rows for each color to account for the smaller sized garment.
D. took a couple of days off on my vacation week. We went to Putnam CT on Thursday to browse the multitude of antique stores for which Putnam is famous. We only hit two large ones, which was more than enough and filled a few hours. Believe it or not, all I bought was a brand new knitting book, Literary Knits by Nikol Lohr. I love the striking cover. What it was doing in an antique shop I don't know, but I snapped it up at 75% off. Lots of nice patterns based on Lohr's interpretation of sweaters and accessories for some of her favorite characters, with items for men, women, and children. Two of my favorites:
Laura Pinafore based on Laura Ingalls, Little House on the Prairie. I like that the designer suggests using up scrap yarn, as in the red jumper.
The simple two-toned Eppie Bonnet, after little Eppie in Silas Marner. And the models are just so darn cute!
