Knitting Needles Break??

This is my own design!!  I was feeling so excited about it and couldn't wait to blog it until......I leaned over to pat my dog and one needle broke into pieces.  No, my belly isn't that big!!  They are plastic, yes, but I loved them, and had just thought about how fast I could knit with them.  They have a tapered tip which made knitting with them a dream for me.

I got these needles and many others, including lots of yarn from a mom I met when my daughter was horse back riding, which helped a lot with her anxiety.  The mom brought in a huge garbage bag of many, many different types of yarn.  I was humbled.  She said she had arthritis and could no longer knit.  I felt so sad for her and I could tell that by giving me that bag, that she was ready to stop staring at her stash in sadness.

I think of her every time I use any of that yarn or a pair of cool knitting needles.  Oh, by the way, this is a beanie that I sorta made up as I went along.  I used the yarn I got in a Darn Good Yarn monthly yarn box subscription.  I think it was silk and recycled plastic.  The pattern for that month was a little knit pouch, but I didn't really want to do that, so I started this beanie.  The purple is Caron Simply Soft by Yarnspirations.  Yes, an interesting combo, but it just may work!!

Stay tuned!!
