12mm needles

12mm needles

I just bought some size 12mm needles from John Lewis. I did a double take when I saw them – they’re as big as my fingers! I thought the sales woman might laugh at me as they are so elephantine, needless to say she didn’t. I also bought some superchunky wool from their sale and some bamboo tape to stash and ogle over until I find a pattern for it. This knitting business may well be the downfall of my anti-hoarding attempts.

Giant needles are quite difficult to use as they keep slipping out of their purls.

My 4 year old thinks they are great as they make great swords or giant wands and he’s right!
