Stretchy Circulars

Here is something new I hadn't seen before-Stretchy Circular needles. Stretchy Circulars TM knitting needles are elastic circular knitting needles manufactured and distributed by Yarn Cubby TM, a woman-owned small business located in the Pacific Northwest. Katherine Sotnik, Owner, Yarn Cubby, 210 N. 6th St., Mount Vernon, WA They looked interesting and there is a free pattern for socks using the circs on the website:

Looks as if it would be just the thing for you toe up sock knitters.

Oh and here is something else from Joan Schroeder on the fair isle knitting group:
Look at picture #25. Really makes you want to get your needles out and start knitting, NO??

Do you ever use these to hold a shawl on your shoulders? WEBS is offering this mother of pearl on for $30. Is that way overpriced? I am not sure I would use it! I wear shawls a lot and would like to try something like this, I think. I suppose I could just use a double point needle and see how it works.

Well talk to you all later,
Lynda still talking like a gravelly smoker!
