HiyaHiya


I am probably the worlds slowest knitter! But I Love knitting, and knit every single day. I wanted to show you the progress that I have made on my sock, using the HiyaHiya 9 inch knitting needle. I have finished the leg and am starting on the heel flap. This is just the slickest little needle. I think that I can knit socks faster with this little needle. And I think that this would be the perfect little needle for knitting socks while traveling, because you wouldn't have to worry about losing one of your knitting needles. I have to tell you this little needle did take a bit of getting used to. The first day my right hand hurt a bit from knitting with it. But after that first day everything was fine! And my hand did not hurt any more! I really like this little needle!!

I've never tried HiyaHiya needles yet, but have heard good things about them. The sock looks great!

Those are great looking socks. I have never seen this needle but will have to go look for one now! I don't mind my dblpoints but lately I keep pulling the needles out when I take the socks out of my bag!

I actually managed to fly to Japan without being given crud by airport security because I had one of these in my sock-knitting. They DO work fast, although I was knitting socks for my then-bf and they seemed to take longer just cause his foot is so dang big! I do enjoy them, though.
