Don't get me wrong - I love the Koigu - the colors are knitting up beautifully. However, I am knitting these socks up on a #1 needle and this pattern contains many YO's and K2's. The Koigu is a rather dense yarn knit at this gauge - a little like STR lightweight. Combined with the sharp points of the KP needles? My fingers are developing these little shiny callouses.
To give my fingers a break I am alternating this:
Well it is negative 13 degrees outside today, what would you have me do?
I have Season 1 of Dr. Who lined up on the computer for this afternoon. Look for progress on the projects!
Those socks are pretty! I'm not seeing much of a break though, but alternating projects is always a good idea.
