So, I have been working my courage up to wards starting some socks. I even went out and bought some more sock yarn in some awesome Regia Design Line Kaffe Fassett color-ways. I picked a pattern after tons of decisions and hemming and hawing. I woke up this morning and decided that today was THE day. I would tackle the unknown.
I grabbed the yarn. Found the pattern. Grabbed my trusty needle gage and the multi-set of double pointed needles I bought in China. Found the equivalent of the US 1.....started reading the pattern. Counted the number of needles in the set for the size I needed. Decided it was an issue with the pattern. Went to back-up pattern number two and number three. Drats! All of my sock patterns call for a glorious 5 needles....my lovely sets from China all have 4.
My only set with 5 is a size 8 set.
Its fate. No socks for me. At least no socks until I can hit the yarn store for needles!
So as a consolation I spent some time working on my project for International Crochet Day....and had a brilliant though while doing it. A lovely long waited for surprise is coming if I can only find the time. Will get back to you all on that one!
Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!
