So, poll results!
Really, only one person saw that the most important thing to me was getting rid of the infestation of monster spiders that has plagued me. I guess I have been remiss in posting about how ginormous and creepy these spiders are. I was consoling myself that at least they were keeping the mouse poplulation down, they were that big. On the evening that I killed EIGHT of them before bedtime, I decided if there were that many that I saw, I did not want to know how many I didn't see. I moved to an upstairs bedroom (because spiders don't climb stairs, right??)
So, first things first, I set out the spider traps. (Which are working in that spiders are being trapped, but I'm still finding spiders outside the traps.)
Then I unpacked the laptop. It had been gone for a WHOLE WEEK! During which time I'd gotten a new camera that I was dying to hook up. And I'd missed so much blogging and stuff.... so the computer was second.
And finally (the next day at lunch, actually!) I unpacked my set of KnitPick's Options needles. I will say, in defense of all of you, that the reason I thought to post a poll was that I was surprised at myself for not grabbing the knitting first.
Once I got settled down a bit, I moved my current scarf project off of my rosewood circulars and onto a new needle. I really love it! I love the pointy end and the smooth tips. I actually have not had any problems with the yarn catching at the joins - which I cannot say of either of my usual Inox or Addi Turbos. They are a great value for the price. My greatest hope now is that they will come out with a 16" cable and then I'll be set from size 4 on up. And if they could make a second set with a small enough join from size 0-3, I would gladly abandon any other circulars.
