Rudder’s home, yay! Now we have a couple of days to rest up before heading off for a drive around Denmark, Sweden and Norway. Today I am off to a jewelry and beading fair, where I have hopes of being able to score some silver wire and findings. And if not at least I’lll get in a bike ride to a new area (it’s only about 6km each way).
On the knitting front, I’ve turned the heel on the navy socks for Rudder. Yesterday I realized that the reason these DPNs are being such a pain is probably because they’re too long. I got the longest ones I could find so I’d be less likely to have one slip out, not realizing that that would mean they’d be more likely to get in each other’s way. Now I know why DPNs come in different lengths. Well, I wanted to knit these with DPNs instead of circs for the experience. Unfortunately I probably won’t have a chance to get a shorter pair. (Hmmmm…. Rudder’s going to work later today, and the knitting store’s right near there. I wonder if he would take on a commission?
