To all you guys who said I would love circular needles, Thank you!!
Well, just to give you all a small update. I've been using circular needles for my latest project the Jaqueleen Fee sweater and after a couple of false starts can I just say I love using them. In fact I love using them so much I've just orderd a set of Denise interchangable needles. Ive read a couple of reviews and people sem to like them.
Any of you guys out there used them? Would be interested on your views.
The sweater is coming on a treat by the way, Ive done maybe a third of it already and I am really please with the results. Will post a pic when Ive got a bit more to show you all.

Born again are ya?? Well let me tell you that I have been born again so many times my soul has stretch marks!
I'm going to finish up my clogs on the drive home to Texas. And no, not 'while' I'm driving!.... hey, I just might miss Arizona if I do that! not bad.
Keep up the good work.

Well, I've finished the second (or rather third) clog. All in all, I'm pretty happy with the outcome!
I made the clogs out of Rowan Magpie (a discontinued yarn which I purchased on eBay.)
I've had so much fun with this project that I bought yarn, needles and another copy of the pattern. I'm giving them to my partner's ex-wife as a birthday present today.
Felting is amazing (especially for us perfectionists - felting covers a multitude of mistakes!)
I've actually created 3 clogs. The first clog I made was the version with the bumper. I messed up on the second clog and didn't knit the bumper. This gave me an opportunity to try both styles. I decided that I didn't like the feel of the bumper version because I supinate (my foot actually rolls out when I walk.) As a result, the bumpers started to roll out as well. So, when I knit the third clog I knit it without the bumper.

Ok, I am really fed up with this bullshit spam business. Mr. pitch and whatever as well as Miss tinywoofuckingwho. They need to be trashed big time, sent packing and kicked in the ass until their nose bleeds!
I think it upsets me!

I'm putting together a scarf for myself (based on a Saxon Braid design I found in a book) and I'm thinking about putting tapered ends on it. However, I don't really feel like figuring out the numbers for the tapered bits at present, so I thought of doing a provisional crochet cast on and coming back to it later, once I have the body of the scarf done, so I can figure out excatly what I need. I'm wondering if that would be odd though, picking up a provisional cast on and knitting back in the reverse direction. Are there any difficulties, does it give some odd looking join or anything?
