Not That Kind of Hemp

I can't wear it yet (it needs a good agitating trip through a washer and dryer), but it's done, done, done.

And I'm glad of it. All those stripes - what a pain. And even though I carried the yarn, there were still a lot of ends to weave in - eight for each sleeve alone. And as usual, I've finished with an entire skein not even touched. Details will be available when I have a picture of it after washing.

Now I can go to Stitches with a clear conscience.

And do you think I've used these needles enough?

I swear, I'm not that rough a knitter. It sure does look like I'm tense, though. I think it's just that I used these needles last summer to make the Cardi Raye, too, so they've been subjected to heavy use, since they're only size US3 and it takes a lot of size three stitches to make a sweater (or two).
