Top Five for 2004

While looking at other blogs I ran into a nice knitting list on The Boogie Knits. Since I am finally back on track with blogging and work after much sickness and holiday, I thought that the list would be a nice way to end the old year and start the new. Here it is!

Top Five for 2004

Favorite Needles for 2004:

My favorite needles are Clover Bamboo, with Brittany wood a close second. I am partial to circulars, but will still pick up straight needles for flat knitting.

Favorite online shop for 2004:

My favorite online shop will always be ebay. It may not have everything you want, at all times, but you can score some amazing bargains. And, my yarn purchases have been as good as promised!

Favorite yarn for 2004:

This one is a toughie. I love Noro, but I think my favorite for this year is the 4 strand GGH Via Mala that I am using for my Weekend Knitting Poncho. It is just lovely knitted up and fun to work with.

Favorite finished object and KAL for 2004:

This is an easy one! My favorite object and KAL are one and the same--the lovely Klaralund. The KAL was infinitely helpful, with even the designer changes spurred by the KAL. And I have worn the finished sweater many, many times, with numerous compliments.

Exciting new technique (for me) for 2004:

This will prove that I am a fairly new knitter--I love the spit splice that I used on Klaralund. A little fraying of the wool, a little spit, a little rubbing, and no ends to sew in! What could be better!
