When I posted earlier asking for needle recommendations, bamboo needles were mentioned several times. The snow has finally melted enough that I could get out yesterday to both Hobby Lobby and another Michael's store. Hobby Lobby had no bamboo needles
but lots of wonderful yarns to drool over! But the Michael's closest to where we live does (as opposed to the one close to work which does NOT have bamboo needles)! So, in the middle of my dishcloth, I changed to the bamboo. I like them, a LOT! I still struggle with purl stitches but the bamboo makes it so much easier!
The only downside is that my liking of the bamboo needles doesn't do much to help me resist the full set of Harmony needles I'm lusting after though...
I just have to keep reminding myself, wait a bit until you see where this new obsession is going!
