Day 3: In Which We Learn the Importance of Numbers


Does that look big enough to fit me?

Damn. I didn't think so either.

Of course, if I'd used size 1 needles like the pattern called for, rather than the size O I grabbed, it might have fit. I might have to go buy me some size 1 dpns. Oddly, I don't have any, although I do have two size 1 circulars. Tune in tomorrow to see if the Linnet can cope with knitting socks on two circs.

In the meantime, since I know you want the details: This is Spunky Eclectic's Skinny Sock yarn, superwash merino in the Attack of the Killer Tomatoes colorway. I think I bought this at SPA in Portland in 2007. Or maybe not. I'm casting on (and on and on) for Lisa Lloyd's Saxony Socks in A Fine Fleece. There are probably thousands of sock patterns in the world today and I've resisted all of them, till now.

Or maybe I just have a really bad case of spring startitus.

Clearly, the universe in its infinite wisdom is directing you to go to your LYS and buy size 1 dpns.

Although most sock stuff tends to be a bit off, size-wise, when it's on the needles. At least when there is still fairly little of it.

Then again... if it's obviously too small, you were wise to frog.
