The Joy of 15mm Needles

15mm knitting needles with super thick orange yarn

I’m a bit behind schedule with some of the gifts I’d planned to make lately. I’m currently working on a fairly fine scarf for a friend of mine (fingering weight on 3mm needles), and it is taking forever.

So I took a cheeky break to tackle this gloriously thick merino, with the biggest needles I own. The big guns—15mm.

Oh, the speed! Oh, the luxury!

What a shame winter is over and I won’t get too much wear out of it til autumn…
