I received further information for the required materials for the upcoming Knitters Guild camp yesterday which then required careful checking and some checking of supplies.
First I needed to pick from the 10 colours for my bead knitting kit. I narrowed it down to 2 and still was stuck. So it was do I go black or do I go Garnet. Debated with myself which to select for a while then thought well Ill ask a friend who was online and chatting with me. Final decision done I am getting a Garnet kit. So thought one dealt with and ordered.
Ok so bead knitting I didnt have the needles to use. Wait until today to ring around for them. Start with a bead shop in the local area, they told me to try spotlight or a local discount shop as you cannot knit with beads. Get off the phone laughing. No product knowledge in that shop.
Try a different bead shop they again tell me spotlight or a shop which closed several months ago. They were helpful atleast.
Rang a place I know stocks them and they told me that they dont stock knitting needles in the 1.25mm size, only to 2mm. Question the abrupt rude girl on the phone again as to doll needles that are used for bead knitting. She tells me they have double pointed doll rods. Yes that is DPN knitting needles ask price and well consider.
Rang another place that stocked them they only had pairs and well they were very efficient and helpfull got the price.
Check out ebay can get needles and postage for less than the price of the pair and its a pack of dpns. Ordered them so next get organised for social knitting.
Concentrate on getting orders done and well maybe knit for me again. I was looking at how long ago I last did that. The tea cosy will hide for a touch longer before the next addition is out.
