Start of Great Uncle Angus

This doesn’t look like much right now but this is going to be Great Uncle Angus. Remember I mentioned him. He’s from Jean Greenhowe’s MacScarecrow Clan. But do you notice something, a problem I ran into?

I needed needle size US 2 for him and the only 2s I have are double pointed. They aren’t very big and so the stitches are falling off the ends. I guess I could use another needle and knit with three needles but what a pain. I will have to get some new 2s. I wish I had thought of that when I was at the yarn store.

  1. Great Uncle Angus? Where is Dad? Did Dad have a horrible bagpipe incident? Ha! Can’t wait to see how cute he is when you finish him. 🙂

  2. I’ve read some rubberbands on the ends should help keep the stitches from sliding off, the produce rubber bands work if you have them. Can’t wait to see the finished product 🙂
