I'm going abroad in a couple of weeks, and I need some non-TV watching activities to keep me occupied, so I'm trying to take up knitting again. I've got a big box of yarn that I haven't used so I'm trying to figure out some stuff I can do with it.
Two skeins of fine yellow baby wool, gauge about 5 st=1" in stockinette on size 5 needles
about one skein of rough spun blue wool, I think worsted weight, gauge about 4 st=1" st st on size 11 needles
about one skein of very fine shimmery black wool, gauge about 7 st=1" st st on size 5 needles
some assorted white chenille yarn and heavy purple worsted weight, enough for decoration and things
And if possible I'd rather not use DPNs, since I hate them. I don't own circular needles but I can get them and I'm not morally opposed to them.
Any ideas, TQCers?
