I was sure there had to be a 32″ size 5 needle. I’m afraid to count, but conservatively there’s got to be at least 50 circular needles in this house, so I was hoping not to have to purchase one. I finally tracked it down, attached to a long-dormant project. Not only long-dormant, but nowhere near completion. So this happened.
The dormant project is a sweater that I was designing based on having swatched, and liked, Fuchsia from the first Barbara Walker treasury. Now having removed it from being scrunched on the needle I see that it may be a tad (um, maybe 3-4″) wider than I need. So, plus side? I’ve saved myself the anguish of getting much farther along and having to rip back. On the minus side, of course, I’ve got to rip out the whole thing and start over anyway.
Maybe someday. For now though, I’m cooking along on the other sweater and I didn’t have to buy another needle!
