Merry Christmas, everyone!
I am embarrassed to ask this, but I need some honest advice about a gift I rec’d. from DH. I am so new to knitting - and this may be a great, great gift, but…
I usually knit with Clover bamboo needles. I have tried the metal ones and do not like them. Looking online before Christmas I discovered Lantern Moon and fell in with their rosewood needles. For Christmas, I asked for [I]one pair[/I] in a size I didn’t already have. I just thought it would be a special treat to have those beautiful needles to use on occasion.
DH, being such a generous man, bought a six-pr. set of Colonial rosewood needles in a Clover tapestry case on eBay - and I don’t think that I like them :help: I feel awful. I also already have four of the six sizes (6, 11,13,15), if that makes a difference. The one sz. I’d like two prs. of - sz. 8 - was not in the set, LOL!
Am I being really petty? I honestly don’t know. DH was sooooo proud of himself, but he also found out (after he bought these) that I wanted the Lantern Moon ones and told my mother that he may have jumped the gun on buying the needles.
What would you do?
