I received my Wool and the Gang package a couple of days ago!
I loved the packaging. Kits are just so fun!
The yarn is beautiful and so soft. I’m not sure I’ve knit with baby alpaca before or if I have, I’d forgotten just how soft it is.
The kit came with a nice pair of knitting needles as well.
They were so comfortable to knit with. Notice the use of past tense. This is where the story gets a little sad. Somehow I was running around yesterday getting ready to leave. I’d put my knitting project into a bag, and I am still not sure what I did, but I managed to break not one but both needles. Somehow when I went to pick them up, I heard a snap.
I’ve been knitting for about 7 years now, and in that time, I think I have broken maybe one or two needles in all that time. I’ve never broken two at once! I was so disappointed and still feel very dumb that I was careless enough to let this happen.
So I had to switch to some 10.5 circulars that I have.
To make myself feel a little better about writing about the needles, I took a picture of Davey holding my project. His smile certainly helps!
Can’t really see the work in process too well, but I’ve gotten a good start.
This is a great pattern for a beginner! They provide great instructions which include not just the pattern but also clearly written guidance that would be very helpful to a new knitter!
Those needles looked really nice. Sorry about your mishap. Great picture of Davey! And your project.
