Lurking

Is there a sock knitter lurking beneath these nimble fingers? I cast on for these toe-up socks by Anna Bell on Friday night. Look how far I am just 72 hours later. Plus, I painted my bedroom all day on Saturday. Very little knitting. I am enjoying these so much I may even knit the second sock! I think I'll have to, because there is no way this sock is going to fit my friend who doesn't wear matching socks. Good thing I'm enjoying the sock.

I'm using two size 1 Addis and some Koigu KPPPM that I had from the Chevron Scarf I recently frogged. I just didn't like the two colors I was using. I do like them separately, though. I also think this yarn is great for socks. I'm getting a different gauge than the pattern, which is why the sock is so small. I can squeeze it onto my foot, but it is snug. Maybe it (they) will go to my sister. Maybe to Aimee. Maybe I'll never knit that second sock.

size 1 needles........gahhhh!

Just wait. Soon, you'll notice that you're using smaller and smaller needles. Anything over an 8 just feels huge these days.

hi - i found you through the needle shop site. i don't knit maybe socks, but from what i've heard, koigu is great. also, it's actually washable, even though they don't say it on the label. cheers -

I am definitely liking the koigu. I'm glad to know it's washable. I had an inkling that it was, but it's good to have it confirmed. I hope you're planning on going to the Needleshop's Yarning Club. They happen once a month, so check the schedule.
