New member!

Hello everyone, I'm new here! My SP11 hostess invited me to join after she saw my Chevron on my blog so here I am!

I blatantly "stole" my colour combination from Tiennie of Tiennie Knits but I have two more planned (if I can ever finish this one).

I want to love the needles, but I just can't. They're too long. I either need shorter straights or some circular needles, so I think I'll admit this to myself now and then pick up some Addis at iKnit when I head down for next week's knit night. Then I might actually finish it. (This needle preference is a complete turnaround. I used to hate circs...)

Anyway, here's the latest glamour shot of my scarf. It will be a gift for a friend back home in Seattle (incidentally, sorry Tiennie, but that means there will be three scarves of this exact colour combination running around the same part of the world. Probably not the best choice on my part now that I think of it. But it's so perfect for my friend I didn't really think before running to Blue Moon to get more yarn!)

The yarn is Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks that Rock mediumweight and the colours are "Monsoon" (the darker colour, and the Rockin' Sock Club 2007 yarn for February) and Footzey Foo.

Beautiful colors!

I'm using circular needles right now, and they are working very well :)

Am I praising myself when I say it looks beautiful Arianne? :) J/K! It does look great. I only knit on circs now - no straights and no DPNs for me.

I love the colors!

I haven't knit this scarf yet to know how wide it is, but perhaps you have some dpns that are long enough? Stick a point protector on one end and voila! Instant short straight needles.

I'm thinking that my DPNs are too short...The stitches would slide off the needles...I think.

I'm just going to have to suck it up and buy an Addi Lace circ at knit night tomorrow. :)
