I'm a big fan of Knit Pro's needles and the interchangable needletips and cables. But recently I've had some misfortune with a couple of items. Two needletips have broken at the part where the wood is connected to the metal part. I've had problems before with needles where the glue gives in and the metal part falls off but now I've had some clean breaks. It really sucks because I love theese needles and they are expensive (with my economy) to replace. Both of them have been the new cubix needles and considering this has never happened to me before I'm starting to wonder if they are somehow weaker or if I'm just really unlucky. Today I had both a needlebreak AND a cable break. Both during knitting. The plastic cable broke. It's just not my day today.

I recently discovered this cute little widget!
I love it! It's just fun to know how many meters of yarn I knit for a year. It will be interesting to see what it says in December.
Create your own here! You simply add each of your projects and then as you knit or in the end of the project you add how many meters you've knit. Simple. And fun. And then there's instructions for you to add it to your blog, website, Ravelry etc.
I must admit I don't add the actual meters I've knit and then had to rip and reknit but that's just me. I feel as if it doesn't count somehow. I messed up therefor it doesn't count. Whish I was that strict in some other parts of my life (like cleaning, erhm...if I clean just half a room then I feel I have cleaned and therefore is done, haha).

So, as I mentioned in an earlier post, I'm knitting yet another of Veera's designs. We had a sunny day today, so I managed a photo with better lighting. It's soo pretty! And it's really soft! Single ply fingering weight is new to me and I like it.
I also managed to score an excellent trade today! I'm parting with theese goodies but I'm getting something just as pretty in return! Although I really liked this yarn neither the colour nor the sparkly stuff was really me.
I know I promised to let you know when I'd put up yarn for trade/sale on Ravelry but there's still a lot in my stash I think need new homes.

Or after... You know winter in Scandinavia tends to be dark... And this will be a cardi for spring. After darkness is probably more appropriate.
Anyhows It's a brand new pattern by Veera Välimäki. The yarn is Madeleine Tosh Merino Light and it arrived in my mailbox on the same day as the pattern was released.
It's meant to be!
