Like Knitting With Toothpicks

I have NEVER knitted with something so small in my life, and these are only 3's!  They get SMALLER, people!  All the way to 0!

I always said I would never knit socks. No one ever sees them, so I figured, what the heck is the point?

A customer wanted to learn how to make a short-row heel of a sock, so I taught her. And in the process, became addicted.

I have no idea what it is about it; maybe the yarn is so delicate and small and tedious and detailed and lovely. Maybe it's that I can take it with my anywhere cuz it is such a small project. Or maybe cuz it is such an easy fit.

Here is me sneaking a pic of my sock work from bed. At like 12:30 in the morning. *nerd*.

But, I better learn it for all the sock yarn I am planning to carry in the shop.  Stay tuned for yarn updates!


  1. I won't knit socks because I hate to wear socks but I did buy some sock yarn to make a pair as a gift so it's on my ever growing list of projects.

  2. I hate to break it to you, but I know one person who knits with 00. She even has some 0000, but just brings them out in classes to freak people out.

  3. And then there are the crazy people, like Althea Crome, who use needles as small as 11/0; that's US#00000000000 people! (See her lunacy at )

  4. OH. MY. WORD. Althea is a completely crazy and AWESOME at the same time! Wowsers! Thanks for sharing! :)
