The Daily Purl

soy hat

Leave a comment

Another weekend afternoon at a LYS, learning to knit a cable hat from a Rebecca pattern. This is the first time I�’ve used double pointed needles and I have to say it�’s not so easy. Can I do the same pattern using circulars?
I was sitting at the table with other knitters trying to balance the four dpns, occasionally grabbing a jellybean or two from the bowl in the center of the table, when four stitches fell off the end of one of the needles. Who invented double pointed needles and why? I pushed forward and continued to knit ribs and cables in the charcoal colored soy yarn. A fellow knitter said that if it didn�’t work out I could eat it. Not so crazy an idea because a carton of silk soymilk is a staple in my refrigerator.
