I am no longer keeping my straight needles. The only purpose they are serving right now is decorative and they are messy looking at that.
I wish some knitting genius would have advised me to stock up on circular needles instead of straights. Wondering where this post is going? Well, I am bunching them up by size and selling them in my Etsy shop. I am hoping someone out there just loves straight needles!!
They are very nice needles- birch, rosewood, and bamboo.
I am selling other knitting odds and ends- point covers, cable needles, stitch holders, thimbles, finger protectors, etc.
I feel like I have hit a knitting milestone. I have been at it long enough that I know what works for me and it is time to get rid of the rest.
It is like finally remembering the kitchener stitch. Big milestone!
