The Sunstruck needles are grabbier than the NPs, I find. I've gotten used to it and like it. The cables can be different colors, I can have different tips, colors or material they're made from, I still manage to knit with the wrong one when doing 2 circs. It's just me, I think. Well, Jan said she's done the same thing but I don't know that she's used different needles, I have. I hesitate to put anyone else in the same class of distractability that I'm in. I'll look at the sock yarn at KP again and maybe give some a try. I've used LB SockEase and Serenity sock yarn. Both are quite warm.

Right now I'm working on this shawl using Red Heart With Love in boysenberry. It's not a difficult pattern so far but I kept messing it up on the first rows. It's something I have to finish very soon and I keep getting distracted in my counting. Thank goodness for lifelines. I think a plain rib or something might have been better.
