magic wands!

I knew reading Styles would pay off someday. Can you believe it? (Click on the Slide Show.) I can't wait to get my paws on a pair of these babies. These are the perfect needles for those long and dark car trips. When learning to drive, were you told that driving with the inside light on was Bad and Dangerous? I certainly did. Hubby always says that he doesn't mind the light, and frankly, just turn the damn thing on so you can knit and stop complaining about how long the drive is taking and how much you hate being in a car, because given the choice, dealing with the light while driving is better than grumpy you. But I always say that the light has to stay off whilest driving because that's what I learned.

This is going to open up a whole new category of vacation yarn packing. Not only do you have to find the perfect project that meets the needs of the trip, you'll have to find something that works with the glowing needles. Sadly, I'm not a big fan of straight needles. When are the DPNs coming out?

Also, how many times will this article be posted on knitting blogs by the end of today? My rough estimate = 750. Leave a guess, and I'll send you a baby item (since that's all we've got around here).

my estimate? = 249 blogs

I'm also not a fan of straight needles so I'm putting in my request for circulars! My DH already was shocked to find out I was knitting in the hair salon a a few days ago. He'll have a heart attack if I show up at the movie theatre with these!
