New Project!

Even though the last thing I need is yet another project on the needles, I totally started one anyway!  I got this amazing new sock yarn from Knit Picks (Stroll Glimmer in Foxglove) and I just couldn't wait to cast on a new pair of pretty glittery socks!


I have had the Nine to Five pattern by Nicole Hindes sitting in my Ravelry queue for a while and I thought it would be a great pattern for this yarn.  I'm enjoying the pattern so far - it's not complicated and the special twisty stitch is really fun to make!

The pattern calls for size 1.5 needles, but I don't have those, so I'm using size 1.  That's the smallest needle size I've ever used!  Go me!

  1. Hi - thanks for heading over to my Facebook page. I really like your WIP tabs down the side of your blog - you seem to be one very busy lady (who has amazing nails!) I look forward to seeing how your year goes.

  3. Love the yarn. Is this the first pair of socks that you've knitted?

    1. I have knitted lots of socks, but usually I use size 2 needles. This is my first pair on the itty-bitty size 1 needles!
