They’re on the needles!

Finally, the red line to howard socks are on the needles. They would have been on sooner, but I had problems with my size #1 circular needles I had just bought. I cast on the right number of stitches, but the gauge seemed much larger than my test swatch. So I checked the needles in my needle gauge and they were much larger than a #1, they were closer to a size #2! Geez.

So I’m using some double pointed needles (that are the correct size!). Hopefully I’ll be able to return my circulars and get some different ones that are the right gauge. I designed the pattern based on using circular needles, and I know my knitting would go much faster…

I’ll post a picture when I get it posted. You can check out my progress on Ravelry as well.
