I went to a school board meeting last night, I sat down in the back as always with my knitting bag at my feet and started knitting away, someone sat down next to me and when I glanced over I see a a man knitting with what looks like two crochet hooks. OK, so who cares what the school board is talking about, my kids hate school anyway. He tells me he learned to knit in Portugal from two men in the lobby of his hotel. For anyone that hasn't seen this style here's a video showing it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uZ31pk05CBE
I found these needles on the Lacis website and am seriously considering learning how to do this although I kind of see limited possibilities (no knitting in the round!) Has anyone tried this style of knitting?
Also now that I have your attention, any ideas on how to block a scarf that is going to be about 80" long? My usual method is to block something that long on my deck, but the snow is going to prevent it.
