I am almost done with my “Purple Socks”. I am using a cashmere blend colored by Yarnerian. The yarn is so wonderfully soft and the shades of purple put me in such a mellow mood. What lovely, lovely yarn Ruth cooks up. I wish I could buy a lot more of it.
Unfortunately I have discovered that my needle stash is infested by gremlins. They ate all of my size 0 bamboo needles. I am telling you, – it socks! I looked everywhere, my beloved bamboos are not too be found. And I know I have at least 6 sets of “0’s”. At this point I have actually gave up and will be ordering more of them tomorrow.
I have been knitting the “Purple Socks” with the wooden Knit Picks DPNs and I am not happy. At this point I have 3 needles left from the original 6. They snap like the matchsticks they are! I love the wooden Knit Picks needles, but next time, I am not buying any smaller that size 3. So I have substituted with 2 aluminium needles and the knitting goes on. But I still miss my bamboos.
