So excited: my new needle set has shipped!
After trying a KP Symphonie Cubic needle, I fell in love with the shape of the needle. It was so much more comfortable to use, but alas, I am a metal needle girl. While the Kollage needles are metal, they only come in fixed circs. Sigh. Charlotte was doomed to be an unfulfilled knitter.

Until now! Knitters Pride has released the Nova Interchangeable Cubics. Same great shape as the the wood Cubics, but in metal! Woohoo! My set is on its way into my hot little hands!

I can't decide which is harder, waiting for my order to be shipped or waiting for it to arrive after it has been shipped. You're waiting for delivery. What do you think?

I think the answer to that question is yes.

That's what I thought. Further consideration makes me realize that the harder one is the one you're waiting for at this moment. When should you have them? I want to hear all about how you love them! I'm almost as excited for you as I would be for me.

Oh my, you & I are philosophers of waiting, aren't we! The webs site said I could delivery within about 9 days of placing the order ( 2-3 for order fulfillment, and about 6 for shipping), but surprisingly they were in my mailbox Saturday when we returned from the humane society with Gizmo. I only learned this when I found the needles in my seat Sunday morning.

Only a new fur baby could prove more interesting than a new set of needles!

Now that I've opened them, I can hardly wait to cast on with them... more applied philosophy of waiting is at hand.
