Knit stuff

This is a yarn I picked up cheap in Germany. It is made by GGH(or is it GCH?). It is a superwash yarn. I am knitting on 3.75mm Addi Turbo circulars. Two rows of 1x1 rib and two rows of garter stitch, alternating. Very easy to knit.The drape of the yarn is very good. I started with 6 rows on 3mm, then 6 rows on 3.25mm, 6 on 3.5mm and then into main body.
This is one I have just designed and started. I have not knitted a rib. I just cast on and gone straight into the pattern. The yarn is Rowanspun Aran and I am using 5mm needles, bamboo circulars.
I have completed the front and back of this work. The design is mine. The yarn is Alaska made by Garn Studio's. I have used 5.5mm rosewood circular needles.

I love Rosewood Needles. I have one set of size 15 double points and would love to find more. I did not know they had circulars in Rosewood. Must find those.

Rosewood needles are not easy to come by, at least not circular kind. I got mine in Germany.
If you Goodgle "Holz&Stein" you may find something.
