That's what I've done with the lemons I've been given with the Inox needles. Right after I realized that not only did I have the wrong size needles, and that Inox has their own version of what a US size 2 and 3 are, I talked to Mel on the phone. Her Inox measure up the same strange way...how odd.
In the long run, this whole mix-up turned out to be a happy accident. I'm actually loving the way the yarn knits up at 8 spi. The stitches are much more uniform, the yarn feels more luxiurious and soft. I've casted on for sock 2, and it looks like I have about 2" of the cuff done so far. Knitting magic loop vs. dpns in the round feels much more comfortable to me at this point, and as I'm easing into the "zone", faster as well.
Mel, Caro, and I got together for an impromtu gathering at the coffee shop today. I met Mel at the door demanding my KP Shine that she's been holding hostage since yesterday. You just won't believe how *evil* she is. She left a message on my phone machine, taunting me, telling me that I must show up to recieve my prize.
So, we have our yarn for Picovoli, we have our patterns. Now, we await our needles. We have no patience at all when it comes to waiting for Addi Turbos...
Meeting was a blast. Lots of knitting, gossip, and even a little learning time. I showed Mel magic loop, she did really great. I'm so proud. I have a great picture of her first attempt. Of course, it's still on my camera. There really should be more hours in the day!
Back to Picovoli... I'm just a bit terrified of the pattern. Love the picot edging. Not so good at provisional cast on. Tomorrow sounds like a day for sitting down with Amy's videos and practice.
It's just glorious to have 7 new balls of KP Shine in my house. It's hard to stop fondling.
