Ravelympics progress and setbacks...

I had a bit of a set back today… My 3.75 mm zephyr needle snapped! A replacement is now on the way from knitpicks, and I happen to have a spare from the last time this size snapped on me, but I will be anxious knitting with this size until the replacement set appears (and from now on). I swear I was being careful… I hate it when that happens. I learned from my lesson and ordered a pair of 3.75 mm DPNs as well.  I love that I didn’t have to pay for shipping.

I started with this yarn for my veggies...

Now I have a little less yarn...

and a few more veggies...

The Aubergine and Tomato are finished. I am going to move on to the Carrot next. I have some sport weight yarn that I am going to use double so I can knit with a different needle size for a while.


  1. Your veggies look so yummy!!! Are you using the patterns in "Amigurumi Knits" by Hansi Singh?

  2. I meant to leave a longer comment but I got distracted.

    That sucks that your needle snapped. I've been lucky I've never snapped a DPN. It's not funny really, but it's kind of funny that we're having the same setbacks. Good luck this week!

  3. Thanks for your comment prettystitches!

    I am using Amigurumi Knits by Hansi Singh for a lot of my veggy knitting. I think I will have to post a review eventually since I will be using it for several more veggies. I enjoyed knitting the tomato and the aubergine but hated and gave up on the carrot. Stay tuned for discussion about that soon!
