am I nuts?

Filed Under Knitting 

So, yesterday I received this in the mail from Metamorphosis at Etsy:

It’s my first skein of merino sock yarn. Hand-dyed, of course!! I never thought I would be the kind of snob who insisted on hand-dyed fibers for at least some of her projects. I mean, honestly, there are lots of beautiful colors available in that mass produced stuff… but I digress…

So, the goal is to try and knit my very first pair of socks. Let me start by saying that I *hate* knitting on more than two needles, and I’ve never been able to get a circular needle to work for me. So am I nuts for trying this? I gotta tell you, that maybe I just want to be like Gina over at yarnbar. She and Susan are making me totally jealous with all their beautiful handknits. I’ve become totally addicted to their blog.

I’m still waiting on my needles (itty bitty ones) from KnitPicks, so in the meantime, I’m mostly just petting and snuggling with the skein.

So pray for me if you do that sort of thing, otherwise, just keep your fingers crossed that I won’t go completely insane trying to finish this project.
