Someone with an interesting and inventive mind created the phrase boiled ass to indicate how lace looks.
I think it looks more like boiled ramen noodles. Those are my brand new Knit Picks Harmony interchangeable needles and I love them. I had tried making this Turkish Stitch Bag with several different metal ones and invented a few nasty words in the process. After the sixth time the stitches slid off the needles I knew I needed help. Crochet cotton is darn slippery.
Now how does this look to you?
Notice anything about it?
Want a closer look?
Yes. After finally getting the thread to stay on the needles long enough to actually make most of the bag, I knitted the stitch marker into the bag. I could frog or tink and reknit.
Or I could just cut the darn thing with scissors.
