I splurged! Probably many of you have these needles, but, if you will remember - I'm the gal that knit many, Many, MANY pairs of socks with Pony Pearls.....about the least expensive dpn on the market. And - loved every stitch. So this is a long jump for me......
Or, perhaps I will knit another pair of plain jane socks such as these:
I finished a very soft and snuggable cowl this morning too. It's actually still damp, as I snapped this photo.
Ivy Vines by Anne Hanson. I knit it out of a very decedent yarn - Cascade "Epiphany", which is 60% Alpaca, 20% Cashmere, and 20% Silk. I weighed the remaining yarn and the cowl, and I actually have enough yarn to knit another one!
But - that will have to wait. I need to try out those new needles! I ordered 2.25mm and 2.5mm sizes. My favorite go-to sizes of dpns for fingering weight projects. I should have some fun.
Oh - and the final update on BG and the Nemo mittens. At my encouragement, he wore them to preschool to show one of his teachers, Miss K, as she is a knitter. He ran in with hands extended and much enthusiasm as he announced that grandma had knit him Nemo mittens. Then promptly took them off, threw them on the floor, and has touched them not since then. So...... spring will soon be here. We'll revisit warm woolies next year - he'll be three then. Hmmmmm.... we'll see.
