I used to knit on just the very tippy tips of the needles, and my tension was so tight that the acrylic screamed and squeaked for mercy as I pushed forced stitch after forced stitch onto my needles. My hands ached after each go at a row. To think I went from that, to this:
Makes me a very happy girl.
