You knew it couldn't last long... right? I wouldn't survive long without a pair of socks on the needles. And today, I caved. I was up at Mom's helping get some new yarn ready for the shop (There's some shiny new Alley Cat in there now...)
I snagged one of these skeins and caked it/
Anyway, I finally talked Mom into watching Downton Abbey while I was there, but I didn't have any knitting with me... but I did have a caked skein!
Hundred Acre Wood.
I also went down to a 2mm needle. Normally, I don't like knitting on needles that small, but I'd actually started the pattern a few months back, and the small size on 2.5mm was coming out HUGE. I also didn't like that the small size didn't have the purl stitch between the patterns that helps add definition. This yarn is so busy, it needs that definition. So, now I'm working on tiny needles, but the sizing is much better.
It's been fun knitting so far, but tomorrow, I really have to get back to the fingerless mitts... and then Lestrange... I'll have an update on that beauty soon....
