I’ve gathered my supplies for the Lace Ribbon Scarf from Knitty, I hope it works out using cotton. The Rowan 4 Ply Cotton is pretty, it’s like 1/4-scale yarn.
I have been loving the Addi Natura needles because they have the non-memory cord. For a while I was loving the Crystal Palace circulars because they have a rotating join, but the last few pairs I’ve bought (in the 4 to 6 size range) had joins that stuck. The Naturas may be $$ but I like the finish and tips so much more than, say, Clovers that I’m finding it worth it. Also, after researching interchangeable needle sets I’ve decided to skip buying one, too many people had too many troubles. Besides, I’ve got every size from 3 to 15 now, it’s far to late to save money by buying interchangeables now.
