a circular solution
So I'm chugging along with 2 socks on two circs. Problem is about every 10 rows it starts looking like this:
I keep knitting with the wrong end of the wrong circ. Grrrr. If only my Knitpicks Options circular needle cords came in other colors then that butt ugly purple. Then I'd know which end was which at a glance. Ah!
Nail polish! I'll put thin coat on the cable near the join on each end of one one of them. Now hopefully it will stay on long enough to be useful. Otherwise it may be back to DPNs.
I finished some shiny, angelina wool bend from Bountiful Spin and Weave.
I do like it, but there is a lot of angelina in there. I do admit I like a wee bit of shine, but this is close to disco. It was a little tricky for me to get used to spinning too. Lots of snapping at first.
I think it's going to be socks. I don't know if the fiber can stand up to the wear though. Maybe a black heel and toe with plain yarn?
Check out the knitted giant squid Archie! Complete with leather beak! I thought Nauties where cool!
For those of you wondering about Geyl, the huge queen sized bed shawl, the pattern is online now. Knitty D and The City both have Geyl FO's. Someday I'll make it to the FO list!
