What pics I took before now represent “frogged” (ie ripped out, as in rip it, rip it, a common crochet and knitting “euphemism” for the one thing ALL knitters and crocheters loathe doing, right up there with “weaving in the ends” on our “to do” list). The picture posted above represents what I managed to redo, just about twice as much done this time around than on the first attempt.   I frogged the first attempt because the count was “off”.  I always tell newer crocheters and knitters, if you ain’t willing to frog it back to the cast on (knitting) or foundation chain (crochet), DON’T BOTHER picking up the needles/hook or yarn in the first place.  Something worth doing is something worth doing CORRECTLY (I’m a school teacher’s daughter, remember…)

As for what needles, they are Kollage square knitting needles (yes, you heard that right, the needles are SQUARE in shape, NOT round) on the firm cables, they also have a second cable style, I bought two of these circular needles in size 7, one in each cable style, from an EBAY vendor.
