Just a quick Knitting Olympics update.
My KnitPicks size 0 cable decided to FAIL on me when I had just started working on the index finger of my glove. Both ends of the cable came out of the needles and it wasn’t a good moment for me.
At 11PM last night I was in the craft room, rooting around to find another project that I might be able to start/complete by Monday.
I had yarn, pattern and needles at the ready to start a pair of Monkey socks. Yeah, I know. Everyone has done them but I like to be behind the curve. Kinda starting a NEW curve, if you will.
After calling 2 LYS and going into (blech) Hobby Lobby and not finding the needles, I decided to try to make do with what I have.
Stuck those cables back into the needles and, being ever mindful of the GAP between cable and needle, I started to work on my finger.
Here’s my progress.
(Shan, the color is almost exact. IRL is a bit darker but it’s an iPhone picture, taken at the allergist’s office.)
Since we’re on Snow Watch #4, I hope to do lots of knitting tomorrow.
I’ll also be calling KP about that darned needle. I talk them up at every opportunity and for them to do this to me…well…it’s enough to dampen one’s Olympic Spirit!
