Getting Dizzy

I've done something I never thought I'd manage. Well two things actually.

One, I'm reading a chart; Two, I'm knitting in the round on DPNs; Three, I'm starting a new project.

Well three then. I was being a good girl yesterday, casting on the front of a vest after taking a break and then… 'Clare you have a package'. Two balls of Noro Kureyon in 124 (red, blue, pink, purple), 4 and 4.5 mm DPNs, and four balls of Rowan Polar in 645 (purple). All from the lovely people at Celticove.

I was itching to try the DPNs but unwilling to drag my yarn out for Mrs Beeton. I cast on for the Hurry Up Spring Armwarmers instead.

The DPN business is a lot easier then it looks or seems or sounds like. Once you've got your first round going you're pretty sorted. It's all rather anti-climatic. I thought it would be harder, thought I'd have a nice warm glow at the end of it.

Oh well. Whole new knitting doors have been opened to me. Circular ones.
