Most of my knitting is small stuff. I just like its portability and nearly instant gratification. Plus, you can't have too many socks, scarves, washcloths, hats, or mittens. Can you? Ignore rationalizing for lack of attention span.
Yarn: Jitterbug, 100% Merino wool, colorway "mushroom."
Pattern: Diddly Baby Socks by Anne Makepeace, (isn't that a wonderful surname?) who is a workshop tutor for Rowan yarns
Needles: #2 (2.75mm) dpns
Comments: A nice pattern and a refreshingly quick change of pace from the Judge's socks I am also knitting in dark navy blue.
On to another small project:
Yarn: Hempathy, 40% Hemp, 40% Cotton, 20% Rayo, colorway 07.
Needles: #2 (2.75mm) dpns.
Comments: This is a very nice pattern with a chart instead of written instructions; easy but fun and the finished texture is really pleasant.
It goes into the stack of "can't bear to use" washcloths. They do make good small gifts.
