Why circulars are better….

….because, unless all your knitting falls off your circular, you have everything you need to continue working on your project.

As opposed to discovering, far away from home as well as yarn shops, one of your straight needles is no longer in your knitting bag.

Hey, if it’s slow at work today I might make some progress.

    Having once gone far away for a lengthy stay with my grandmother at a hospital where she was recovering from some stuff, and having discovered only 3 dpns in my bag, I hear you loud and clear.

    Sadly, I have recently rediscovered the pleasure of working with dpns for socks, rather than the Magic Loop I was all into for a while. And while I haven’t lost any needles lately, I frequently find that pulling my work out of my knitting bag frequently yanks one entirely out of the sock.

    Ticks me off.

    Boy have I been in THAT situation before! And, with circulars, you rarely pick up your knitting to discover you just pulled a needle out and have dangling sts!

    Have you tried the 2 circular needles method? (Socks Soar on 2 Circular Needles by Cat Bordi)? Of the 3-double points, Magic Loop, and 2 circs, I LOVE the circs method.

    Oh, btw, I like your blog.
