The #PennyDreadfulKAL, of course. I’ve spent more time than I’m willing to admit in public trying to figure out how many stitches to decrease. And, yes, I might have screwed up a bit of the moss stitch already. But design features, right? What is exciting is that moss stitch is actually great for my carpal tunnel! Alternating stitches really does help.
Sooo… today I got an AMAZING gift from Alexis Mantione, inventor and owner of @mytwoladiesknitting adjustable Straight Knitting Needle System. Just when I thought I knew everything there was to know when it came to knitting needles, this little lady comes along and my mind exploded when she invented this system when knitting those big bulky blankets. As most of you know… I love making big knits and always found it frustrating knitting big blankets when all your stitches start scrunching up. With these needles, that no longer is a problem 🤗. Guys you NEEEEED to check out these beautiful needles, especially when knitting those blankets and shawls that require so many stitches. Check out “My Two Ladies” and get your hands on these needles: www.mytwoladiesknitting.com and follow Alexis here on IG @mytwoladiesknitting FB: My Two Ladies.

You’re a genius!!!!!❤ Everyone… FOLLOW,FOLLOW,FOLLOW HER!!!!!
