Then, we went back to her place and I raided her stash of knitting needles. I wanted to take a short break from the yellow and black baby blanket and decided to pick up a sock in progress. These socks were being knitted on bamboo DPN's which was OK, but they have become warped. I think from just being used and from the heat from my hands. While rooting through my Mom's stuff, I spotted a set of Susan Bates aluminum needles. She used to knit gloves and she has oodles of them. Most of them had a price tag of 50 cents, 55 cents & 65 cents. Unfortunately, the set that I picked up doesn't have the price marked on them, the last set of bamboo DPN I bought were about $9.
My stitches just glide off the needles! It feels real good to be using the same needles as my Mom. The Cauchy socks from Cookie A's book, Sock Innovations.
