Yes indeed, I *am* knitting with chopsticks! The reason is really simple – the yarn is super bulky, and I’m too cheap and lazy to buy super bulky knitting needles. It’s been raining non stop the last day, so curling up with a blanket and almost endless episodes of Castle feels like a good idea. The hat is the Bulky hat pattern, by the way. I expect this hat to be mighty warm, and it’ll be needed in the dead of the winter in Chicago, where this is headed!
