I made a wonderful discovery of a brand new yarn shop in my town…close to where I live, even! Whoopie!!! It’s beautiful, the yarns look amazing, and I can’t wait to spend more time (and maybe something else) there. The reason for my visit was that I was in need of some hardware for a new project. MY sockies. The pattern calls for size 1 needles. I was not the owner of such tiny little needlettes, but now I am. They’re so dern cute! And flexible! I think we shall become fast friends. The pattern I’m making is here. The yarn I’m using is the blue grey over in the photo strip. It’s my first venture into lace socks.
