Oh, I'm going to enjoy these!

Look what came in the mail yesterday!



I was stalking the mailroom guy in my office, hoping these would come soon. I ordered them Thursday afternoon and figured I had waited long enough by Monday morning! I was sick and tired of my stoically looped circulars - anything larger than 16" in anything other than Addis needed massaging and heat not to coil in upon itself while I was working on them. The last straw was with the Spring Cape I'm knitting for Willow (Yes, it was supposed to be an Easter Cape, but let me tell you - that ain't happening) - I just couldn't get the needles to even behave enough to knit a row or two without getting frustrated. I transferred the cape onto these babies last night, and let me tell you - THE NEEDLES HUNG STRAIGHT DOWN AFTER I HAD TRANSFERRED THE STITCHES! I had never seen anything like that in my life! I hope sometime in the future Knitpicks comes out with cords to make 16" needles for these as well.

Remember when I said before I have a hard time taking decent pics of Willow? She likes to squint, grimace, squinch up her face - anything other than have her eyes open and smile... well, the trend continues...



And yes, I took about 5 shots and this was the best one...

Hee hee! She's so sweet! Maybe the sun was in her eyes this time? ;-)

And I'm sorry, but those green Boise boxes just gave me the moving-willies! Hee hee!

She's a cutie! Great smile! I too love my Options. I don't have the whole set..yet, but the sizes I use the most. Hoping the 16" cords come out soon too!

OOOH, I thought I was the only one that stalked my mailroom guys for yarny packages! HAHAHA

I particularly like getting boxes from "Astrid's Dutch Obsessions". They must think I'm all kinds of weird! HEHE

Your daughter is TOO adorable!

Don't you love them. I purchased my set awhile ago and I can't get enough! The cords are fantastic and the needles are nice and pointy!

I just got the Options set too! I love them. So slick and very flexible.

And your daughter is adorable.
