Have you ever been sorted into your Hogwarts house?
Just this week I took the official test at J.K. Rowling’s site Pottermore and was sorted into Ravenclaw. (It requires you to set up a
user account to access the sorting hat, but I’m enough of a Potterhead that it
didn’t bother me – though not enough of one to have an account already.)
This wasn’t my first time being sorted – like I said, I’m a
bit of a Potterhead.
Before we get into how to begin knitting on circular
needles, let’s talk about how to choose the circular needles for your project.
Besides needing to know the size (in US sizes or mm) of the needles, like you
would with any other type of needle, you also need to know the length. Circular
needles come in multiple lengths, including 9, 16, 24, 36, and 48 inches.
So how do you decide which length you need for your project?
I’ve been looking for an
excuse to make this sweater for years.
I stumbled across the book
Greetings from Knit Café, by Suzan Mischer, in my local library and loved the patterns,
so I got my own copy. Some of the designs are fairly impractical (a knit
evening gown, for instance), but others I’ve just been waiting for a chance to
try. And even the ones I would never make, I love looking at.
