Felicia's Notebook, Knitting, Taking Back Friday

Knitting Sweaters with Signature Needles

Felicia Lo Wong's Wild Autumn cardigan knit in SweetGeorgia yarns

On today’s Taking Back Friday vlog, we’re going to talk about catching up on knitting all the things I’ve not been knitting. I had started working on a colourwork cardigan last year and it was supposed to be done last autumn, but then it got stuck. I have been feeling unmotivated about this particular project just because I feel like I’ve been stuck for some time. It’s basically almost done… all I have to do is pick up and knit around to make the collar, but I’ve been holding off because there have been other things I could do. I could wind a warp. I could start another project.

The one thing that has got me a little bit motivated to pick up and finish this project though is I’ve been tempted with a lovely set of Signature Needles. These needles are like the crème de la crème of knitting needles. So the question is, if these magical needles can help me finish the project I’ve been working on for months.

You can find the Signature Needles available for order on our site for a limited-time. And while you’re there checking those out, don’t miss our pre-holiday sale, our Sweater Season Sale, where all of our sweater weight yarns are 30% off from now until November 16th, using the coupon code: 2021EARLY30.
