Today Primogeniture came home from school with a gift he made for me with his own two hands.
No - not the knitting - the knitting needles! My fourteen-year-old son made them in Technology Shop at the high school. The shop teacher gave him a funny look when he said he wanted to make knitting needles. He had never had that request before! I'm so thrilled. The needles are simply gorgeous and they smell good (made out of cedar). Here are the fine points: Not too short. Not too long. Not too heavy. Not too pointy. Just perfect! They're bigger than a US Size 15. Since they're handmade, they're not an exact number. I have a pair of 12mm needles in my stash and these are approximately the same diameter. I think they'll be perfect for a quick scarf in this thick wool/acrylic fleece blend.
Thank you Primogeniture. I really love my gift.
