This is the 2nd of 4 purple projects I'm "actively" working on right now! I do seem to go in spurts when it comes to color, don't I?
I posted when I started this sock (on November 10th!!) but haven't mentioned it since . . . notice I'm saying "sock" not "socks"? Yeah this is the only one I have right now, although the second one is already to the heel.
It would have been done by now had I not managed to break two DPNs during my commute last month and then been unable to replace the needles for almost a week. Now, if you're thinking "But Ivete, don't you have multiple sets of size 1 dpns by now?" you are, of course, correct. However, I couldn't find even ONE SINGLE size 1 double point when I went digging, and I even went so far as unearthing the DPN case I haven't seen since the move . . . and in it I found probably 15 sets of dpns, but no size 1's. If I weren't so compulsive I could have used on size 2 and probably been fine in the end, but I don't like to do that . . . although I can't give you a reasonable reason why it would be a problem. It just bothers me.
Hum. Seems like even 2 months later I'm still annoyed about breaking those needles!
In any case, I bought a replacement set of needles from Purl a few days later and went back to knitting, the second sock even went with me to several movies over the Christmas holiday (aside: If you're that last person who hasn't seen Slumdog Millionaire, GO SEE IT! Trust me!). If only I could learn to turn a heel in the dark, that second sock might be done right now . . .
By the way, I am still in total love with this color. Is it weird that part of me wishes I had "saved it" so that it wouldn't be getting "used up" by this project? Yeah, I know it's weird. It does kind of explain some things, though . . . namely the number of skeins of Koigu in my bedroom at the moment. But you all knew that about me already, right?
