Sock Madness is coming

I can hardly contain my excitement. I keep thinking through my stash making choices for the yarn, all the techniques I know for making socks and which needles I want to use.

I think today I will select yarn - but what if I change my mind?! Then I can wind them and get ready.

I am sure I will decide to use my knitpicks options needles. I really like them. I could use my harmony dpns but some of them are split a little and catch the yarn. I suppose I could attempt to file them down and fix them, but I've been thinking about doing that for months and still haven't done it. I could also contact knitpicks about it but I haven't done that either. Brittany dpns are still my favorite but I bend them until they form c shapes.

I have been busy working on Mary Tudor. I have about 25 rows until I start the neck shaping. I hope to start the sleeves next week, although Sock Madness will have to take precedence. I don't know how I'm going to manage to wait until next week. AAHHHH!!! (hehehe)

I found my Central Air pattern. It was in my camping materials that I brought to Quest, which makes total sense since I was knitting them on the way to SD. I'm going to use the pattern with the new cotton from Setti.

What are you bringing on our road trip?
