What’s the point of going back to work after staying home for five and a half years if you can’t indulge a little? So I treated myself with these! Remember I was kicking myself for not buying all sizes of dpn’s last time? I fixed that. Got them at eBay for $43.50- 8 sets of 5, 7-inch in length, needles in sizes 4-10 1/2. A word of caution about auctions…before you know it, the bidding price can go so high you might as well buy retail. I think I came out ahead because the larger size ones can sell up to almost double my auction price per set at a store.
Shortly before I bought the needles I also bought enough yarns from Knit Picks for 3 projects. If they had all the colors I wanted, I would have bought enough for 5 projects! I guess I can wait on some of them as I still have a few projects to get to. I finally caught the “stash” disease. Never thought it’d happen to me. But don’t you just love the self-striping sock yarns with such gorgeous colors? Ever since the shipment arrived, I’ve been itching to start on those even though I was trying hard to finish a project already in progress. I finally gave in to the urge and did a swatch which satisfied my “appetite” for now.
The yarns are:
Felici with Provence colorway for Jaywalker socks.
Swish Superwash Worsted weight colorway Wisteria (lavendar) for a shawl.
Comfy colorway Blackberry for a skirt.
