The sock is scheduled for completion tonight.

schoeller and stahl fortissima colori sock yarn

I worked only the short-row toe and short-row heel on the dpns this time. After which I moved the sock to a very small US 1 (2.25 mm) circular needle in a 9″ (23) cm length. It took some getting used to working on such tiny needles, but I felt it was a matter of safety for Yarn Rascal. I feared that he was going to poke his eyes out every time he jumped in my lap with the dpns in my hands. The small circular needle is much safer, though harder for me to knit with.

My second new item this week is a snap and go notions case that fits in the palm of my hand and holds everything I need for my knitting yet is impervious to Yarn Rascal.

No more locking stitch markers in Yarn Rascal’s mouth or stomach. I am even going to get a small, half sized crochet hook to keep in the case for when I need to repair a mistake. The snap and go notions case was purchased at Exchangingfire on Etsy.
