... sometime soon! am buzzing with the news that my buckwheat honey is winging its way across the pond as we speak - can't wait. i get so envious looking at all your lovely yarns and work! but soon it'll be my chance to make my home a hive of industry!
btw, on the subject of wires. i have been using mine, bought from Heirloom Knitting, for ages now, and love them. especially for a big project, such as the Wedding Ring Shawl, i find them so much easier, because they get all the points even without faffing. just thread them through, pin in a few places, and it's done.
two tips, however. make sure each time that they are absolutely spotless, if you don't want to have to wash your work and start over again :( . and if you need more than one on a side, which you usually will, overlap them by 2 or three points to stop getting bends where they join. i had to get two sets to do a big project.
happy knitting, all you busy bees. off to the Lake District for a few days R&R, so of course it is raining already, and we haven't even left London yet. still am not going to let it spoil my fun. and it's a five and a half hour drive, so lots of lovely knitting! ;)
