Time to think BIG

I’ve been annoyed that after sweating over my knitting needles for hours on end, the result is a paltry few centimeters of dodgy knitting.  It’s taken me weeks to produce a dolls blanket – originally a scarf but the quality indicates it should go the way of all dodgy beginner knitting – straight to the doll’s house.

I now have the solution: Giant knitting needles. I’ve got me a beautiful pair of hand made limited edition ebony wood size 25s from Nikki Gabriel.  They look superbly sculptural and decorative just sitting around waiting to be used and feel great in the hand.  I intend to make giant stitching strides from now on.  Only issue is that every mistake will be amplified, but heck, isn’t that the beauty of handmade?

(You can find them at the delightful shelf/life in Surry Hills, Sydney, or buy from Nikki Gabriel online).
