no sooner had I posted about disappointments yesterday than the mailman delivered a package! Awhile ago, Kathleen had alerted me to an Ebay site with great prices on Addi-Turbos. I was having none of it, being a big fan of my Denise set. Then I gave Sue’s Addis a whirl. (Sue is Kathleen’s mother and should have a blog and book deal of her own!) I still love my Denise’s, but the tips on the Addis are fabulous. So off I went a ordering.
I am just finished the first sock in my Knitpick’s simple stripe sock yarn. I want to give the Socks Soar on Two Circulars method a try, but don’t want to have any gauge issues between sock #1 and sock #2. So the Addis will stay in their sleeves until the next pair of socks.
Was I savvy enough to check the needle recommendation for the Black Water Abbey project? no.
As for the blog contest of Monday — I am anxiously awaiting word that the package arrived. Hopefully it will be today. So far, no one has guessed correctly – I really thought Snowball might have figured it out. ::hint, hint::
