I'm returning to knitting after a long, long time. A long long time ago I don't remember ever hearing of such as thing as circular needles. I spoke to people in my LYS, and read stuff on line, and most people love using them, so I decided to give them a whirl
. But I picked the wrong pattern to do it with.
Even with 3 balls of yarn, I think you still have to end up knitting backwards, or drag your yarn over to the next spot on the sweater that you need it, b/c you're only going in one direction.
So it goes. I'm seeing a light at the end of the tunnel on this project, and promised myself something much more fun (and on straight needles!) for my next project.
