Knit Pick Options labeling


The KnitPick Options Needles http://www.knitpicks.com/needles/Needles_Options.aspx are wonderful as well as the Denise Interchangeables http://www.knitdenise.com/ . I like them both equally. It all depends on the projects & the type of yarn, etc.

Anyway, the only drawback to the KP set, if it really is a drawback, is the pouches for the needles is unmarked. So, I came up w/my own solution. What you think?

WIP Sock


Well, I'm making some process w/sock knitting on 2-Cirs. See? LOL! I'm almost done w/the leg portion, then to move onto the "heel flap". This particular pattern is from Cat Bordhi's book, Sock Soar On Two Circular Needles, pg. 20. The pattern is called; Columbine Peak.

I'll post a photo when sock #1 is finished. (Now...I'm committed! I must finish what I started. )LOL!

Socks!

So.....I've been trying to learn the 2-Cir method for socks. After about 4 days of trial & error....mostly error.....I'm finally making some progress. I currently have about 3" completed on sock #1.

It's been quite an adjustment from working on size 9 needles to size 1. It feels like I'm working on toothpicks. Socks require lots & lots of patience.
