Thank goodness I'm a 21st century knitter


This morning I showed my mom the Denise needle kit and the Kyoto and baby sweaters that I'm in the process of seaming. She told me that when she knitted in Japan, she used 3-4 bamboo sticks to make a sweater. I just spent a half hour today trying to figure out how to pick up stitches and turn rows. I can't imagine trying to do all that on four needles...

Three to four bamboo sticks? Wow, I don't think I would have been up to that challenge! Love the pic.

WoW! I can't imagine not having circular needles! I like being a 21 century knitter too : )
