Starting over

Today is a day for starting over. I went to a needle craft show today and one of the booths was selling bamboo knitting needles. I read some good reviews about them and decided to try them out for the socks I will be redoing.

I also decided to take off the border off of my Storm the Castle quilt. I was not happy with the colour of the border. My LQS had a big sale of fabrics for $5.00 a metre and so I found some fabric I think will work better. It will also work for the backing as well. Hopefully, both projects will turn out as perfect as the yarn!

I have some bamboo needles and love them. Anytime I can use wood or bamboo needles instead of metal, I'm overjoyed! Let me know what you think of them.

Good luck with the border switcheroo!
