Over the weekened I grabbed the yarn I’d bought to knit uncia with the intention to sit and knit a while. The only needles of the correct size I had were metal, so I cast on and gave it a good go. The needles were quite heavy and horribly unbalanced, so that stitches were slipping off everywhere and it was not at all neat.

It was not quite the pleasing experience I’d hoped for.

750th attempt. i’m not really jazzed by this yarn either

I decided that life was really too short to work with unsatisfactory materials, so bundled up my small collection of metal knitting needles and have gifted them to Clarissifer, the beginning knitter. She was thrilled – as was I with the unexpected decluttering. 


I need to apply this to more areas of my life!
