i can't believe this!

this is my favorite bag for carrying around my sock projects. it is large enough for a notebook, yarn, needles, and my small notions bag. i can even slip a book in there. it is plenty big for what i need.

if you look closely on the left hand side of the bag, you can see a pointy thing sticking up. that is/was my favorite 2.25mm circular needle. it is a hiyahiya 2.25mm /32 inch circular and was a gift from a swap. i really liked this needle. the point was pointy enough without being too pointy and the join was nice. my needle now looks like this...


i cannot imagine how it managed to pop its little head out just enough to get caught on something on the screen door. as you can see, there is plenty of room in my bag. i am so sad.

i just finished ordering some of knitpicks' circulars in the new 2.25mm & 2.75mm/32" sizes. maybe i'll feel better when the new needles arrive. until then, i have reverted back to the inox express which does not have the best join in the world but hey, i can still knit. i'm bummed.

so how's your day going?

I'm so sorry! I know how attached one can become to one's needles. I know if I ever lost one of my Denise needles, I'd have a good cry and a cup of strong tea. Hope your new needles cheer you up!
