I was happily knitting along...

So I was just making great strides on Slipper Number Two of my felted clogs, and I was pushing my stitches down onto my needle's cord (my Denise Interchangeables...oh, how I love them). My stitches were a tad tight, so I was using a bit more force than usual, and stabilizing the end against my leg, and I heard a little *snap*. Yup, cracked the cord right at the connector. So...I checked out my local Ben Franklin's, where they sell the kits, and they don't sell replacement parts. ARGGHH.

I could use another cord, but I also lost one of the connector bits. So, an order will be placed today...And I'm thinking of picking up one of the super-long cords...either the 40" or the 52"...I'm thinking of making a wrap for myself, somewhere down the road...

Ah, and if you have the 40" cord, you can do Magic Loop!

If Denises had needles smaller than 5s, I would definitely be all over it. As it is, I'm waffling.

Do you do that Magic Loop thing? I had someone explain it to me at knitting, and I felt like my head was in a loop. I'll have to get a book on it. SOMETHING so I can get over that One Sock Syndrome.

Yeah, I wish Denises came in smaller than 5s, too. Something with the connection system, it can't be done. :(

Kim,

Thank you so much for the sweater advice. I have used wrap and turns for a pumpkin hat so it won't be too forign to me. The only thing is figuring out where to do them for the cardigan. However I think I can just check out the busty tank and get an idea.

Thanks so much!
