Well, I wound up the ball of sea silk (see previous post) and gathered the ball, the pattern from the magazine, my index cards with each line of the pattern on them, my single point needles and sat in my 'knitting chair'. All set to go. I had everything I needed... well not so fast... in checking my gauge my current set of needles didn't work.
The 6mm needles I was using was making the yarn over holes in the pattern a bit too big for what I would like.
So, off to skipping another lunch to pay for and order new needles. Now, I'm patiently (yeah right) waiting for them.
