I have two WIP on the needles at the moment:
Nachtfalter progress: I just finished knitting the front lace panel of Nachtfalter and am ready to pick up the stitches for the back lace panel.
Vine Street progress: I just finished knitting the decorative waistband on the back half and am ready to work on the body.
The problem: Both projects now require the use of my size 4 metal circular needles!
Nachtfalter is in cotton so there’s no way I’m switching to wooden circulars (my only other option). Plus it’s never a good idea to switch from metal to wood as it can give you a different gauge.
The body of Vine Street is going to be ALL STOCKINETTE. Lord preserve me. I need needles that will knit like lightning. It’s starting to get humid and sticky around here so I’d like to avoid wooden needles.
Am I justified in indulging my completely unreasonable desire to order a new pair of metal circulars. Specifically, say, these stunners?
