Beyond the Beyonds

Filed under:News!,Works In Progress — Aileen @ 12:30

Ok. One broken needle justly deserved some screams. But another?

This is beyond the beyonds

I can’t work in such conditions! This one just snapped in my hand last night. I think I should bin the remaining three and spare myself the torture (coincidentally, my examining work brings me eerily close to an unbrittle needle supplier tomorrow, hence the relative lack of freak-out).

As a result, the red cardigan has been getting far more attention than it deserves.

My version of Miracle-Gro has to be standing in the queue at the bank on a Friday afternoon. Seriously. 40 minutes of knitting right there. I enjoy watching peoples’ expressions when I dig out the knitting in such a situation. Some people make it obvious that they think I’m crazy. But a lot of other people make that, ah nuts… why didn’t I bring my book/knitting/crossword/paper face.

Today, there’s going to be another repeat added to the wrap, a bit more added to the red cardigan and I’m going to make a start on a brioche hat. You can’t beat a quick hat to take the sting out of a broken needle.



  1. its a wonder the line didnt start to move quicker when you got your knitting out – i can guarentee when i have something with me to keep me occupied i dont end up with enough time to do it – but lo and behold if i should forget it then im stuck with bloddy hours of mindless torture of waiting! :(

  2. […] The yarn is from Prague – the brown is a gorgeous wool and the black is the softest alpaca ever. The little parcel in the middle is a replacement set of Lantern Moon needles (if you remember this you’ll understand!) – I was actually really touched by this. Such a kind thought. The bottles? Two Kopparberg! (I am a regular drinker of Kopparberg at the group) Missing from the photo is a bag of wine gums. I wonder why… Good job, Heidi! Isn’t she the best secret santy? […]
