Question from adambr, “I would like to buy a set of interchangeable needles. When I want to start a new project so often I don’t have the right size needles for the project and then lose enthusiasm on the project by the time I get to the yarn shop to get the needles. I would love signature needles but I really not that serious a knitter to spend that kind of money. Any suggestions on a reasonably priced set of needles?”


Leslie is finished Harmony Black and Out Of Nowhere.  She’s listening to Golden Son and reading The Lightning Struck Heart.

Laura has been reading the Cinder series by Marissa Meyer
