So I was at a complete loss for N. I couldn't think of a thing. Neither could Cherry Pie. Then she emailed me: Needles, duh! And why didn't I think of that? Needles, I have so much to say about needles and I could show my pretty needle holder again.
How I found bamboo and never looked back at metal until I found Addi's and I still like bamboo better. This could be a way to list all my needles and hunt for the missing ones, take stock. And then we had fireworks and a huge thunderstorm at the same time. Have I mentioned my giant dog Duffy who is afraid of thunder and fireworks? How he hides anywhere he can? Like in the shower?
Or under the bed where he can't get out and we have to lift the bed up? And he knocks over my knitting basket and this is what the result is?
And now I have only four size one DPN's not five and the Monkey Socks are really easier on five. So I could knit them on four and wait until I can get to a store that sells size ones or...didn't Elizabeth Zimmerman say something about this in one of her books? How gauge wouldn't be affected by one different needle? So I'm using one size two DPN and 4 size one DPN's for the second sock and I swear there's no difference in them at all.
I notice the bigger needle in my fingers but the sock doesn't show it at all. How strange.
