A package of sanity arrived in the mail!
I broke my needle recently and while I love the wooden needles, they are in danger of a toddler's bull-ox climbs on your lap!
I tried using a pair of metal ones but I just couldn't bear it.
I ordered more needles in each of the colors available from KnitPicks so I wouldn't run out of my favorite sock knitting size ones again!
Oh, and the yarn? It's the new Chroma from KnitPicks-
it's superwash in fingering weight!
I couldn't resist a pair of socks in this pattern using great Gansey textures!
I will be doing this sock completely according to the pattern which is a rare event for me and sock knitting!
I want to try the new heel and to keep the pattern going just right, I will be knitting this pair top down!
Maybe this is nothing to you, sock knitters, but it is huge to me because I always take the pattern and just reverse it so I can knit toe-up!
I don't know what came over me but here goes!
