Addi Turbo + Crystal Palace = ?

Socks! Well, not exactly. You still need to add yarn and a whole mess of stitches.

I went to The Knitting Room today and bought:
- Addi Turbo US#2/3mm, 24" & 32"
- Crystal Palace Bamboo DPN 2.5mm & 3mm

The 3mm needles are for some Lang Jawoll Sport yarn that I purchased on eBay a while ago, and the 2.5mm DPNs are to match the Addi Turbo US#1's that I've been using for fingering weight yarn.

To think that for the price of these needles, I could have bought a full set of Denise needles. *sigh*

But now I've got all the needles I could possibly need to knit socks (I hope!). I'm all set for the mini-sock-along with Ilona.

  • I should probably go out and buy some needles for the Sock Along as well (though with the size of MY flippers, there's nothing mini about it! hardy har).

  • Well, you can comfort yourself knowing that Denise doesn't go down that far [wink, wink, nudge, nudge, knowwhatImean,ay?] in needle sizes [oh].

    I love new needles, there's just that "I can knit anything now!" full of potential feeling when you're pulling them out of the package.
