Both threads are Lizbeth #30
I suppose that is why my sock knitting days ground to a sudden halt after several scores, if not hundreds of seconds. I have actually given away all my knitting supplies. Now that the kids have limited their families, I have heaved a sigh of relief!
I felt guilty for a while that I was not picking up the needles... figure that!
Now that the socks are done, I believe I have time for two blue dragons, which I shall treat at the end to a lovely glue bath in order to make them strong for little fingers!
Do you find that using the self-threading needles is difficult when you are using #30 thread or smaller?
I do, so I looked through my supplies and found these, but I do not know what they are called, and I have only a few. I will need to purchase more.
They seem to bend very quickly, just beneath the eye, and then break . But, they are lovely and sharp, and the hole is large enough for the thread.
Since I always have my tatting with me and I have the needle in my kit, when I pass a fabric store I will be able to identify the type of needle. But I was wondering if anyone has the name right there...
