Just this once…
Published On: February 5, 2018

We’re having a KAL for Palpitation, and I’d be delighted if you joined us!  I find I want to knit a few more of these, but it feels like some sort of breach of etiquette to knit in my own KAL.  So I’m going to pretend that what I’m doing is using a few more hearts as a way to talk about some finer points of making these.  But we all know what I’m really doing is indulging myself and making a few more.  But don’t tell anyone, ok?

One of the questions I’ve been getting is ‘so I love the hearts…but I hate DPNs, can I use circs?’  And of course you can!

I mean generally speaking I won’t…because I’m apparently set in my ways and hopelessly taken with my DPNs.  But there’s no structural reason why you can’t.  And just to prove it, I did.

There really aren’t many things where you just flat out have to use one needle style or another.  In fact, other than a mobius cast on, I’m having trouble thinking of something where you must use a specific style of needle (doesn’t mean there aren’t others…just that I can’t think of them off the top of my head).  But rest assured, the hearts work fine with whatever you like best!

Which means that the rest of mine will be with DPNs…but you probably already knew that!
