The right tools make all the difference

Just a quick panegyric about tools - especially when you switch from an adequate tool to the right tool. I've been putting off knitting a promissed bit of contract knitting because I really struggled with the first half of it. Tiny dark needles knitting thin dark wool into twisted stitches made a project irksome. I was using KnitPicks size 1 Harmony needles to make a pair of socks out of some deep forest green yarn. I never gave the dark color a thought since it's summer time and I often knit on the porch where there is great light.

Only - I haven't been knitting at all on them because it was just too hard to see the stitches even with bright sunlight. On Monday I dug through my jumbled needle stash I uncovered a lovely size 1 Addi Lace needle just waiting to be freed from it's packaging. I've zipped through most of the cuff and will start working on the heel flap tomorrow.


Cuff stretched a little so you can see the lace pattern
