Wow, I am overwhelmed by the response to my contest to win the kit for making my Mariner’s Mitts. It’s been lovely getting so many comments. Maybe I should have a contest more often! There is still time to enter, you have until Sunday night, 23.59pm GMT. I’ll be using a random number generator to pick a winner on Monday.
In the meantime a new FO to show. This is my Moon Pulls jumper, and I am so pleased with it. I haven’t blocked it yet so I hope that might give it a little bit more length, but if not it’s ok.
Pattern: Moon Pulls by Dianna Walla
Yarn: Lett Lopi
Needles: 4mm, 4.5mm and 5.5mm HiyaHiya interchangeable circs.
I finally got to knit a whole project using my interchangeable HiyaHiya Sharps. They are fab. The points are nice and pointy, and the needles are smooth – the stitches zip along them. The cables are just the right stiffness and what is good is that they “spin” at the join with the needle tip so they don’t wrap around themselves like some of the fixed needles do. There was absolutely no sign of them unscrewing, in fact it can be quite difficult to unscrew them if you tighten them too tight. Make sure you don’t lose the rubber discs or you’ll be stuck!
