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!!
