out of town and easy on the hands

So there may be a couple of extra day delays on spindolyn orders right now. Thanks again to everyone for their patience and well wishing.
On a knitty note, I have had a chance to do a little knitting in waiting rooms. I have three projects in my bag right now, and have noticed that (counter-intuitively) the US size 2 dp needles on which I have started the cuffs for the wristers, are easier on my arthritis than the circular size 10s that have the capelet out of the shiny purple stuff on them.
For some reason, I thought the bigger needles would be easier, maybe it is not the size, but the weight of the larger project?
Even though having a little time to handknit is nice, I can't wait to get home and get caught up, as I would love to have a little time to work on the new spindle prototype, and to hang this purple capelet on the bond and finish it up.
I plan on using the adjustable latch tool with the bodkins stuck in it for transferring the stitches across the row for decreases for the neckline of the capelet, which is knit from the bottom up.
I need to start another project on the LK to have finish work to do, as there will be many more waiting rooms with Mom over the coming weeks.
