Old Knitter, New Tricks

I picked up some seriously tiny needles this weekend

Size 0, length 9″. (also got size 2 and 3)
The tips are only about an inch and a half long, so it’s a little different holding them, but I think I’m getting the hang of it.

I’m excited about the possibilities.
These might revolutionize the way I knit socks.
And mittens.
I really got them so that I could make some of the really neat stranded colorwork mitten patterns that I have saved on Ravelry, but never started because doing stranded knitting on double pointed needles is so fiddly.

In other knitting news, I’m still making good progress on vest #2-

Just got past the underarms, and am now shaping the armholes and the deep v-neck. Colorwise, I’m transitioning out of purple into violet. And I really like how the color scheme is working out so far.

That’s about it for now- thanks to everyone who came out to the expo on Saturday. It was a lot of fun talking wool and wheels with folks all day.

Just keep spinning,,, just keep spinning,,,,
