The main thing I am excited about here is that I am almost to the point I can transfer onto a single needle. 🙂 The back needle has remained at 40 stitches, while the front side has been growing. Another cool thing is that even though there IS a front and back side, the back side is just as pretty as the front, in its own way.
I will likely carry on with the short needles before switching over to the much longer ChiaoGoo lace needles I just bought. The shorter of those is 32 inches, so i’ll probably need to pull up a ‘magic loop’ for a long while once I switch to the longer needle.
