Kollage's Square® knitting needles are designed to be ergonomically suited to your hands, decreasing stress and strain for those who love to knit. They enable you to knit faster with more uniform stitches. At one of our shows, we had several pairs of Square® needles out with yarn for people to try. One sample was knit on by over 30 different people, but the stitches were all the same. These will be perfect with those slippery yarns so no more dropping stitches.
My review: When I started to have problems with my hands, I did some research on what types of needles would be the best. At the same time I was knitting a project with a set of the interchangeable needles. The tips kept untwisting on me and coming apart in the middle of the row. This meant that I am twisting my wrists slightly when I am knitting. I don't even realize. I decided to try the Kollage Needles. I really like them. My hands seem to have less stress while I use them. I like the smooth feel of them in my hands as well as the points. Try a pair for yourselves. See if they help your hands.
This stunning stole kit includes the pattern and Knitting Goddess Silk!
Helen's Lace by Lorna Laces is a beautiful blend of 50% Tuscan Silk and 50% Merino Wool. The yardage is 1250 yards/4 oz one ball, so one ball is all you need for a shawl. There is a pattern on the back of the label, but this yarn can be used for any pattern that requires a lace weight yarn. This beautiful yarn can be substituted in any pattern that calls for lace weight yarn.
This shawl is easy to knit. When you are finished there is no finishing or blocking to size as some shawls require. Knit in a triangle shape, you start at the bottom and as you increase the bobbles are added. Bobbles are easy and fun to make.
It is hard to improve Shephard Sock yarn from Lorna's Laces, but they did! This yarn is so soft and comes in the same gorgeously died colors as their other sock yarn.
