The journal, I mean. I haven't posted here in years...No fun posting about crafty stuff without pictures. And there's still no camera, so no pictures. *sad face*

But I'm still crafting. Mostly quilts. And some knitting, which is what got me to posting; I have an almost finished shawl, which I was looking forward to wear for the first time during my New Year's trip. I mean, there are bats on it! Black lace bats!

And then my circular needle broke. The needle that I bought new for this project! I did salvage the knitting, without losing a single stitch (but there was a nerve-wracking fifteen minutes where I wondered how the hell I was gonna fix this...). But there is no such thing as a 100 cm size 5 bamboo circular needle here in Hicksville, Middle-of-nowhere... I have been in every store in town I thought might have anything to do with knitting needles. (All three of them.) And the closest I got was aluminium and 80 cm. No good. (If I change what kind of needles, metal instead of bamboo, my tension will go all haywire, and that will not be pretty.)

And I don't have time to go to the city before Christmas...

I am NOT amused.

Black lace bats? ROCK OUT! That sounds awesome!

Can only offer some links... Maybe you can find the needles you need there?

Knittingroom.Se, Ateljé Margaretha, Ewe'll love it, Nordic Needle, Ditt broderi.

Good luck! *hugs*

It's looking rather awesome, yeah. *grins*

Thanks for the links, too. Now I just wish I could afford the KnitPro needle set... They're soo pretty.

I am guessing said needle set is from Ewe'll love it? ;-) Lets just say I have a knitting fool on my f-list and she is throwing links around. *grin* And no, I am not talking about you. X-D

Actually no, they're from knittingroom.se, I started looking in the swedish webshops.

Although Ewe'll love it has Lantern moon needles, which might be even better...

Dammit, I was supposed to be writing an exam today, not drooling over knitting needles... ;-P
