I am dying to get back to my Monkey Sock. Not only that, I now have cast on fever for several textured and lace socks my co-knitters in Ebony Elite and the 52 Pair Plunge are knitting. I even located and printed the Jigsaw Sock pattern for Dharmafey's knit along; pretty nice eh?! I have every blue yarn I could find in the Loopy Ewe and Knit Picks. I even got the Lorna's Laces Devon that (
I will finish my second Regia Self Striping sock tonight. I have to cast on my second Lemongrass Moc Croc - having a bit of a needle cable issue there, not to worry I ordered more needles :) Irie mentioned that she likes to knit her socks on 1's and I was thinking, chea yeah okay. Then when I was about to finish my first Moc Croc and wanted to cast on the second sock I discovered that I was working on 2's. The problem with my 2's was that they had different length cables. I bought 24" and it was too short for magic loop so I bought 32" size 2. The magic loop was not flowing for the Moc Croc sock however, so I ended up finishing them on mismatched cable lengths which is just weird.
When I finally got around to casting on my second Lace Anklet, and got those needles back out I discovered they were 1's. So there, I can handle those teensy little needles better than I gave myself credit for. Granted my 0's are still safely stored in plastic :P I am not even looking for a pattern that calls for 0's.
I almost always knit two unmatched socks at once on circulars, size 3 circulars, and I always try to cast on the second sock(s) of a pair when I turn the heel of the first sock(s). The leg and foot take no time to knit. But I just did not have enough size 1 and 2 needles to get it done with the Croc and Lace socks. * * Bordering on second sock syndrome * * So I ordered more needles so I won't have to go through this again. I will be able to cast on the second sock(s), which is so important for me to be able keep up my momentum.
