My mother-in-law is in town for a visit, and she came bearing gifts!

Among several circular knitting needles and crochet hooks were these puppies:

Boye size 50 (and 35) straight needles. Hoooo boy, looks like my plans for a cotton rope bathmat are going to be realized, after all! I need to get some giant yarn for these. They're so big, they're packaged individually:

My friend and fellow Raveler Michael sent me a lovely pair of Signature Needle Arts straight needles, too, which are a new product for me. I love my Addi Lace Clicks, and use them on just about everything, so I'll have to make an exception and put the new ones to use:

Signatures are sooooo pretty. I also got some books, courtesy of my mother-in-law:

I'm super excited about the first one, because it seems to have a ton of historical info in it. A bit of reading to go with all the patterns. I love the patterns in the book, so I'll definitely do a review of it after I've devoured it. 


PS- Still plenty of time to enter for the stitch markers!


  1. Oooh, excellent goodies. Those needles look so huge! I've wanted to try signature needles for ages now, but haven't splashed out yet - be interested to hear what you think :)

  2. I love the big needles!! I just bought some size 35s from brittany. I love their birch wood.
