Foot Surgery Soon

I'm going to have foot surgery soon to take care of acutely painful and annoying bunion. So, I thought I had better get some new yarn and some new knitting needles to help pass the time while I recuperate with a cast on my foot for about 8-wks.

My order arrived from Webs awhile ago, but I put off casting on until it got closer to my surgery date. I can't wait any longer and it's close enough to the first of June for me. I couldn't wait to play ...er...knit with the Regia Bamboo (color 1065). It took me awhile to find the right pattern for this yarn, which has a marbling effect, but I decided to knit the Tidal Wave Socks again. I know....there's enough sock patterns around that I could probably knit socks for the rest of my life without having to repeat a pattern, but considering that I had gifted the other Tidal Wave socks and I really liked them and the pattern, I figured it was OK to knit another pair and keep them for myself this time.

So far...I'm liking it.



Side note: I'm using Addi Turbos instead of the Inox Cirs, because I'm using size 1 and Inox Cirs aren't available in 1's.
