Lexington Trip

We went on a surprise trip to Lexington, Kentucky last Saturday, which, of course, included a trip to the Stitch Niche. I have been wanting to try some Koigu yarn (made in Canada -- I didn't know that), so I bought two skiens of a blue colorway, number 818. I really like it, and have started a scarf from a Koigu book called "a rib lace scarf." It's done on US size 3 needles. I bought a circular set from Susan Bates -- Quicksilver. I don't like them for this project. They are too dull, and the cord is too short -- 16 inches. So I switched to my sock needles from Knit-n-Hook in Huntington. They are Inox needles -- only six inches long, but I keep a point protector on one end, and they are doing great.
