I am new here and new to knitting in general. One things that appeals to me, I am not sure why, are the variety of needles. I know there are a lot of sets that are popular and inexpensive, but so far I kind of like buy needles as I need them and pick out something special.
Today I needed some double point needles for some socks I want to make and I looked through a variety of choices but just had to get some gorgeous Blue Sky rosewood needles. I hope they get a lot of use and will always signify my first complex project.
I was wondering, do you folks have any special needles? Maybe they were gifts or they just got a heck of a lot of use through their career. I always like when seemingly ordinary objects have stories, history, and emotional attachment.
