What do you get when you buy really cheap needles off of ebay? Needles that break in the middle of the project, like this...Fortunately I won't be needing them much longer. The lace section of my SKB is complete. I've managed to salvage the needles by using packing tape to connect the severed needle and tube, but this is kind of annoying since the yarn keeps getting caught on the tape. I blame the tight gauge on this one, it makes the knitting rougher on me, the yarn, and the needles. I bent the needle a little bit too while doing this.
And well of course I'm going to include a little more UConn goodness. I might just start doing this for every post. This is the goody folder that I got at admitted students day.
