There's Something New In My Knitting Basket
It's official. I'm spoiled. I now own a pair of Brittany Black Walnut knitting needles (size 6.5mm), thanks to my husband. I've always admired these hard-to-find needles and wished for a pair, though I was never willing to pay the price for the ones I would see on ebay. John gave these to me as an anniversary gift, even though we had agreed we would not buy gifts this year, just go out for a nice dinner. After 22 years, I should have known better. He says they're not really a gift, just a tool. Of course, being the practical one, I stuck to our agreement and only gave him a card. Pitiful! The very least I can do now is to knit him some socks...out of Trekking (XXL)..and he can Trek Along With Me too.
