Last week I was as far away from a computer as I could get, soaking in the mountain colors of Glacier National Park in Montana (the home state of Mountain Colors Hand-Painted Yarns). Although I spent most of my time hiking, I did haul the Crossing Cables Socks around in my pack and found a few spare moments to knit. Here’s what I managed to get done (mostly during the long car trip).
After finishing half of the first foot on size 3mm needles, I decided to start over with size 2.5mm needles. The larger sized needles were producing a loose knit fabric that just didn’t look right. The sock should still fit the recipient since the fabric is essentially ribbing that stretches well.
I’m anxious to sew Gilet Lace together. I finished all the pieces just before leaving on vacation so it’s been laying on my project table waiting for my return. Hopefully I’ll find time to work on it tomorrow evening.
I’m sure all the knitting lists are talking about the case of the exploding knitting needle. I just heard about it on the local evening news. Don’t those needles look like Addi Turbos?
