It has been some time since I have been here too, so do not feel bad.
Thank you for the advice. I have recovered from the knitting burnout I had, and have gone back to knitting. How it happened was that one morning (early morning, before 6:00 a.m.), I woke up and wanted to knit, so I did. That makes me very happy.
And about circulars, I am thinking of getting size 50 circular needles for a blanket I want to make. Have you ever used size 50 circular needles?
