Joey has been adjusting well- he is still getting used to the other cats, and doesn't quite know what to do in so much space. But he loves the birdwatching and watching the outdoor kitties here, and has been learning to play nicely with one of my parent's cats- the other cat still hides from him (joey is a bit of a Napoleon, strutting about like he owns the place and thinks he is top cat!).
Woolpak yarn. The only downside is that it is knit back and forth to get the effect I want- not a big deal, but just a tiny bit slower to knit.
Addi Clicks and keeping the cord in place. Works really well- I haven't lost any stitches yet, and not having to transfer the stitches back and forth from stitch holders or spare yarn means I am not accidentally stretching out stitches. I've had my clicks (with lace tips) for about a year now, and use them almost exclusively for needle sizes in their range- I still have to use regular old circulars for the smaller sizes though of course.
