New Needles

My mom won a set of rosewood 19mm knitting needles on listia. These things are awesome! I'm not a big knitter but it's fun to try. Plus, with such gorgeous needles, how could you not want to try?

I saw a pattern for a scarf and it got me thinking. The pattern called for two different sizes of knitting needles but there was bunches more to it. So, I made up my own way of doing things. I cast on with the rosewoods, did a row with both needles, then switched to using one 11mm and one 19mm.

Gotta be careful though so I don't scratch the wood with the metal needles. When I get done I have to pull the stitches down and straighten them out. It looks like this.

Kinda useless as a scarf, but maybe someone will use it? Fun to practice with anyways.
