I Need More Yarn

Because I'm really, really tired of knitting this stupid bag, or what is supposed to turn into a bag after felting....I'm not sure it will ever felt to the right size but I should know in a couple of days. Only the handles left to knit.

In The Bag

And I'm really tired of green socks...

Tired Green Socks

I started something new. That happens every time I get a new yarn and this stuff arrived this week from KnitPicks and is new. It is elasticized so the socks will stay up and stretch just right. Last night I cast on for a pair of little ankle socks and I'm using horrors of all horrors, five short needles. I hate those things, I'm constantly stabbing myself, but I'm practicing using them because I hope to smuggle these on the plane for the trip to Greece.

My plan is to put them in my eyeglass case and hope for the best. It will be a long 12 hours without something to knit.

Lace Sockies

One part of the trip has been booked. We leave the first week of September for 6 weeks in Greece. I haven't booked the Germany part of the trip yet or the cruise. Still looking for that perfect

i feel your pain! I hate those little dpns. They don't fit in my hand well, and slow my knitting way down. What about magic loop, 1 circ will look less dangerous than 5 pointy sticks. But it would be harder to smuggle...

Amanda Cathleen, I have absolutely no clue how to knit socks with a circular needle, which is too bad. There are probably lots of nice patterns out there and I hear it's easier. Maybe someday I'll learn...
