i like working
with double pointed needles.
i’m not a fan of magic loop, so i want to grab dpns quite often,
but mine are always in a bit of a jumble.
my dpns, on a typical day, look like this:it’s so frustrating to have the sizes worn off.
even though i used elastics to keep the sets together,
i’m still wasting time hunting for
what looks about right
and having to use the needle gauge to check.
so much ugh.
but, then i found dpn needle rolls by dellaq.
i’m not a girly girl,
and i’d seen other fabric needle holders before, i just didn’t like them.
too flowery, too cutesy, too much for me.
so when i saw this, i knew this was the one for me.cool pinstripes, dark buttons
and a stretchy elastic cord that adjusts to be
just the right size no matter
how many or how few dpns i load it up with? very, very cool.
when i did load it up, suddenly my dpn mess made some sense.well, sort of.
except that i seem to have just one lone size 9?
and my five 7’s are different sizes?
no idea why.
remember that first pic of my barely controlled dpn box?
(scroll back up if you want a refresher)
because now it looks like this:and looking like that, while all the while being fully functional
and ready to travel at a moment’s notice
is pure gold.
bring on the next project that
requires double pointed needles. i’m raring to go!
