A Motley Crue
After two days of looking and visits to two different craft stores, I've assembled the needles necessary to start the girls' Pinwheel sweaters. Visit 1 to Michael's yielded no needles, not one of the 5 needles were there. It's very frustrating to look at a shelf and see sz. 7, sz. 8, sz. 10 - like size 9 doesn't even exist. Visit 2 to Joann's got me several different brands of needles made out of different stuff. I'm hoping that this will not mess up the gauge.
And my yarn arrived yesterday. It's very pretty. I haven't taken it out of the bag yet because I'd really like to finish up my Sock Party Sock first. Gusset done, we're on the fast-track to the toe. :)
Since I appreciate honesty, I'm going to be honest with myself and you, gentle reader. I joined the Summer of Socks with the greatest of intentions of knitting tons of little socks all summer long. But then I had a baby and the thought involved in sock knitting and the amount of time I can spend on them are just beyond my current ability.
I will complete my Sock Buddy's sock and have high hopes of completing maybe one pair in preparation for Christmas by Labor Day. Hopefully.
