Who Needs More Needle? ME

Oh yes I did!!!!
I have added to my collection of Signature Needles.
On the beautiful US size 5 DPN is the start of my Garder Stitch Loop-Through Scarf. I'm 3/4 of the way through and will post pictures with all the details as soon as I finish.



Back to the amazing needles. I now have a complete set of 5 size 4,5&6 DPN.
The red single pointed are 5" US size7 Spiral caps. The yellow are 10" US size8 Teardrop Cap. Both have Stiletto points which I love to knit with. I know I will continue my collection of these beautiful needles. They make great gifts for Mothers Day, Birthdays and Christmas! I'm just saying!!!!



I finished the ever popular Calorimetry by Kathryn Schoendorf found at knitty.
I made it out of Elizabeth Austen Andes I had in my stash. It's a fast knit and I enjoy the shortrows that give it the sea creature look. I will have another on the needles soon.



Finally I have my sock yarn gloves. Made from Knit Picks sock yarn, they are warm and fit perfectly. I just love them!



When you make socks you know there is nothing like wearing a pair that is handmade. It's the same with glove! I will be casting on a new pair today.

Those needles are just... amazing. Totally amazing. Looks like I'm starting this year's christmas list early! =D

The Calorimetry is wonderful. Honestly, I think the two of these I have made have seen more wear than anything else in my whole winter wardrobe. It's such a great pattern! In fact, I've got another one of the needles now!

I love the needles. They make me wish I weren't a circular needle girl!

Maybe you mentioned it earlier and I missed it, but where did you get the glove pattern? Those turned out really nice.
