Today I'm starting with the gift I wanted most of all: a complete set of ChiaGoo Twist Interchangeable needles. Second to this was Knit Picks' Pendleton Needle Case. Can you believe that Mark, Xavier, and Miranda got me both? (hugs to them all)

In November, one of my all-time favorite podcasters did a review of the ChiaGoo needle set, and I immediately put the complete bamboo set at the top of my wish list. The Knitmore Girls raved about their experience using the Twist Interchangeable needles and I was sold.

Alright, I felt a little guilty putting this on my list as I already have a wonderful set of Knit Picks' nickel-plated interchangeable needles, but they're metal and Twist is bamboo. Oh, and my new ChiaGoo set comes in needle sizes from US2 to US15! And did I mention that they're gorgeous and so comfortable to knit with? Oh, and did I also mention that the case is adorable and has a roomy zippered pocket on the front that comes with colorful stitch markers, keys to attach the needles to the cables, and a ruler/needle gauge?

So that my Knit Picks' set wouldn't feel neglected, I wished for the Pendleton needle case which is perfect for storing my US4 to US11 tips.
Now that the hustle and bustle of Christmas is over, I have a few luxurious days to cast on a new project and with my new tools, I'm happy to say that I'm feeling my ennui of the last month ebb away. A new sweater is definitely on the horizon but you'll need to check in tomorrow to see what (new) yarn I'll be knitting with!
