Today was the extreme knitter’s birthday and for a short period of time I have become her toy boy again.
In amongst her presents this year was a set of Cath Kidson racing knitting needles. Sleek, colour coded, lightweight anodised aluminium needles built for the more demanding speed knitter.
These are the equivalent of go faster stripes on the family saloon car.
When the extreme knitter gets into a comfortable knitting rhythm the needles become a flailing blur and the rapid clickity click is no more than white noise.
Life can be tiring living with an adrenaline seeking knitter.
