In Praise of #13 Needles

Being a chunky gal, I never, ever knit with chunky yarn because chunk + chunk = double chunk and who needs that.

Sometimes, though, I do love using chunky needles.

Meet the back of Lucy Lu. The yarn is Malabrigo worsted. The needles are #13s.Photobucket I cast on two days ago.

It's pretty. It's simple. It has a drop stitch border around the bottom of the back, fronts, and sleeves. Photobucket

Wow, I never would have thought to substitute Malabrigo for Zen. Elann has some discontinued colors of Zen for sale and I had actually looked at this pattern and thought that at the sale price I might be able to afford the Zen!
Yours looks gorgeous!
