People are like stained-glass windows.
They sparkle and shine when the sun is out,
but when the darkness sets in,
their true beauty is revealed only if
there is a light from within.
During my recent trip to the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival, I caved in and bought something to go with the yarn that I also bought—colbalt-blue, circular, glass knitting needles from ERNST finely crafted glass. Not only do these needles knit with greater ease than any needles I’ve tried, I feel like I’m using a piece of art. I’m one of those people who write better with a pretty pen and draw better with a special pencil (at least I feel like I do). Just thought I’d share that.
It’s amazing how the little things in life, like treating yourself to those special glass knitting needles, can make such a big difference in the overall experience..Joy!
Enjoyed your gansey sock class!! Please come back and teach again. The pattern for those 2 pairs of socks I brought to is based on a 4 stitch/4 row repeat. Row 1: Knit; Row 2: Knit; Row 3: K2 P2; Row 4: K2 P2. I have glass needles from last year’s festival. This year the call of the Signature 6 inch double points won out. The most perfect sock needles I have ever used. Hope you had time to enjoy the festival in spite of the awful heat and humidity.
OOOO!!! I want a pair of 24″ 4mm designer #22!!! Shame that they are $50 a pair!!! Do they feel easy to break??
Your First Born
What a wonderful time you had at MSWF!
Oh, stunning, the glass needles, how sturdy are they?
