Your daily pork report continues to come via my bedroom …..

I am working on the second sleeve of the sweater. It feels like I have turned a corner and am getting closer to the finish line. Speaking of the finish line – there really should be none of that. This whole thing has been worked in the round and I am going to join the sleeves to the body and work a raglan shaped top. I shall only have a 14 stitch underarm seam to sew. that will be bliss!
In other knitting news, I am loving my KnitPicks interchangeable set. However my two shortest cables have problems. The one would not screw into the needles properly and the other just snapped apart. Kathleen reports that customer service is wonderful, so it shouldn’t be a problem getting them replaced.
I’m loving the pig parade – I don’t even know half these pigs!
Don’t you hate when that happens? I also heard they’re great at replacements, I just love mine too!
Two needles…wow, the Skacel rep is coming soon to the shop. Can’t wait to try the new Addi needles.
I haven’t even read your entire post because I am laughing so hard at your opening sentence …
please don’t be offended girlfriend but this pig is ready for the fryer.
I’ve had a bit of heartache with one of my cables in my KnitPicks Options set. I haven’t contacted them yet about the issue but I, too, have heard that they have stellar customer service.
KP has replaced two of my cables for the exact reasons you name — I can vouch for their customer service, too. And I read a tip on someone else’s blog — when a cable separates from its tip, a drop of superglue will do a very good job of solving the problem.
Hmmm, just had a thought. Maybe a drop of graphite on the threads would make the not-screw-into-the-needles-properly problem go away. I might have to try that if I encounter that again…
