So excited in fact that I cast on a pair of socks with lace weight yarn and size US000 / 1.5mm needles! It just makes me all kinds of happy inside!!
Here is the back/sole. That little stitch marker came with the needles.
Here is the front. I like the color transition more on the top of the foot.
Yarn : Patons Lace
Color : Sachet . . . because it's meant to knit at a very loose gauge, mine looks different, it does more of a striping transition - I am liking it though.
Content : 80% Acrylic / 10% Mohair / 10% Wool
Care : Machine wash, lay flat to dry
Needles : Hiya Hiya Circular US 000 / 1.5mm
Gauge : 10.5 - 11 sts per inch
Pattern : Just a simple toe up so far, casted on 40sts, increased every other row to 96sts, knitting stockinette foot.
p.s. I cannot wait to knit something up on the US000000 / .7mm needles!! Do you think I used enough exclamation marks in this post??
