This is the size one needle nightmare that's busting my butt, but it's also reducing my stash. It's Araucania Ranco sock yarn that was purchased for a shawl, but since all three skeins are pretty much three different colors, one skein is for the first sweater I make for Tilly, my brand new granddaughter. Another will be a scarf. The third? Who knows.
Purling with itty bitty needles is making me rethink my plan for a Bohus sweater. Don't get me wrong--I'm not giving up on the idea. I will knit one some day, it just won't be someday SOON. I'm going to be realistic and clear the decks of all the UFOs and focus mainly on the Bohus, emphasis on the 'cus.' I need to embrace the idea that slow can be good, because my Bohus will take a looong time. I also need to conquer my phobia of steeking, because my Bohus will either be a sweater knit in the round or a cardigan that will be steeked. But just thinking about cutting into a sweater I've spent months on makes me queasy. Maybe I'll steek something for Tilly, just for practice. This grandkid thing is going to come in handy!
