Knitting Geekdom

I am so loving the geeky side of knitting. I confirmed by kitchen scale that I am 2/3 through my mom's scarf (and have done more since then). It is so cool to compare the ounces knit versus ounces left (and subtracting the weight of one needle!). I have now switched to Crystal Palace dp's with point protectors on the other ends. My turned size 6 straight needles are up for grabs. One end seems to have a tiny snag and in any case they are not as fast to work with. Life is too short!

I so get this! I do the weighing thing sometimes too. I love love my kitchen scale, I can switch it to read in grams or ounces - so convenient.
