Today I decided to be a good mom (mealwise and pick up some steaks for dinner for my teenage son, DH, and sweet doggie. As I walked over to the butcher I made a pitstop at LYS but they were closed (what is the point of closing on Monday? Isn't everyone looking for a new project at the beginning of the week?) Anyone, disappointed, I walked past a thrift shop and on a whim went in and asked for knitting needles. Imagine my smile when the woman pulled out 2 large boxes and said "we just received these and put them out today. They are $1 a pair." There were tons of American aluminum needles in all the yummy colors & every size (I couldn't resist a pair of #5 in a bright emerald green, even though I rarely use American needles anymore)but mixed in were fabulous UK needles (my passion). I was able to find 5 pairs in different sizes. They were not identified with a company but the end with the size is red and the size is printed with yellow, the shaft is the aero-type coated metal. I also found some dp's in sizes I don't have. They were closing so I had to be fast but I am going back tomorrow first thing and taking my time!
