Yay! My yarn arrived this afternoon just in time for me to pack something new for our road trip. Of course, the yarn already has 1,286 miles on it. Almost 1,000 more than it should.
It was dark by the time I got home from work so I don’t have a picture to show you the yarn I bought. I did glance through the sock book (Around the World in Knitted Socks) and discovered I didn’t have the size 1 needles to start any of the socks. Of course I didn’t look at all the patterns but the first few definitely use size 1. I may regret my plan to knit every sock in the book. Size 1 needles are small!
I’m taking the soakers and Swiffer covers to work on in the car. I still have to sew on the soles for the seamless slippers I’m gifting to Mrs. Professor. I’m also taking yarn for the Musica Mitts and a fabulous hat pattern from Spud and Chloe to make for the some little heads that will need to be covered this winter.
I probably won’t get to post until Tuesday.
I must finish packing.
Have a great weekend!
Number 1 needle is small. One of the ladies that goes to my craft group bought needles of bamboo (sp.) toknit and she just loves them. They are more expensive than others but she says the stitches don’t slip off the needles when you are knitting. I don’t never had that trouble.
Have a nice trip.
You will get used to the 1s really quickly! I remember the first time I used them. They felt like tiny toothpicks! But it doesn’t take long to adjust!
I am very excited about following your progress through that book. If I didn’t have my own book that I am knitting through, I’d join along with you. I am tempted to do it anyway!
Have a great trip!
