Circular Love

I have found my new love: my new “Needlemaster” set from Boye. I can make any combination of circular or straight needles for sizes 2 through 15. It’s wonderful. I was making the “Nina” shawl from “Mason Dixon Knitting” on straight needles, but wanted to use a circular. I couldn’t find a circular in a small enough size until I got my new set. I switched over to the circular, and now the shawl is working up faster and easier.
For my Nina shawl, I’m using baby sport weight yarn with a size 3 circular needle. I picked colors in shades of pink that are really close together: melon, bright pink, light, light pink, and white. I finished the checkerboard part at the beginning and have moved on into the striping. It looks cute since the colors are so close. I’ll try to get some pics up later.
