fairy knitting

Used to be when I knit lace with mohair my needle of choice was bamboo but when I cast on yesterday it felt like the sticks in my hands were bats. Not graceful. I fished around the place for another needle and all I could come up with was a pair of bright green plastic ones. Okay. They are okay. I would prefer a sharper point, but they are light and easy to handle. Today, as my concentration continued to drift I suddenly realized that the needles and the yarn and the room all matched. Sublime acquatic tones for this lacey confection meant for a small fairy princess.

Those are going to be perfect. Now I'm getting excited to get my yarn!

Lovely photo. I can't wait to see what you're working on when you're done (just barely avoided specifics there). I'll be knocking out some mini-John Wayne gear this weekend!! YAY!

Mmmm, those look delightful. I've been knitting my alpaca and it's a joy on my addis. Silver and blue aren't too far apart in color ;)
