addicted to circulars

okay, confession
ever since i knitted with the Colonial rosewood circulars i won’t go back to anything else, it’s like i find an excuse to knit something with the size needles i have… they are SO smooth and dont have that stupid twisting cord problem, but now i have a problem, cant knit with straights!

so i grabbed my US 13 and US 10.5 circulars and a few balls of Karabella Empire Silk  and started knitting on the drive up to Maine… it’s going to be a short sleeve cardigan, very lacy, i love it!   almost done too… it’s got ribbing on the bottom and will on most of the sleeve

but i do wish that i had the guts to use this color   kara-silk515.jpg

i  also started a test knit out of the brand new “make make” yarn from Olympus… self-striping and very soft wool and alpaca blend
