Finally got around to ordering the Knitpicks sock needle set. So slippery, so pointy. Very happy. The Pony Pearls have developed snaggy tips just like the bamboos. So annoying. If I don't lose these they should last forever.

This sock project was meant to use up 8oz spindle spun probably 3 year old merino/tussah. Hopefully the silk will make up for the loose spinning. Anyhow: ran out of yarn at the heel of the 4th sock. Looking around for a close substitute and found another skein: 150 yds. How could this be from 8oz? Addi 1's, 8st = 1". 1st pair Monkeys (gift) 2nd pair 3/1 rib.
