I made it through the entire month of January without buying yarn! That’s a good feeling! I know it won’t happen in February because I’m going to Colorado to visit the girl this month and I’m sure a yarn store will be in the cards. And to be honest, I did order some yarn last night but that’s different: the MIL ordered yarn for me for Christmas and the package got lost, so she got a refund and gave me the money. I ordered the same yarn she’d ordered but from a different company and it was about $10 more, and I think that’s perfectly acceptable. Once it arrives, I’ll have the sweater quantity I’ve been wanting!
I also got a delayed Christmas present recently, some size 1 SmartStix DPNs! Please excuse the dog hair clinging to…everything.
They’re my new favorite sock needles. They’re pointier than my wood Clover needles, and they won’t bend over time. And I can measure progress with them, so handy!
Apparently today is some big day in sportsball land and even though I live in the KC Metro area, I am one of the few who will not be watching because I do not like that flavor of sportsball. There’s bound to be something else on TV, right? Happy Sunday, friends.
Nice needles! I haven’t heard of those. Can you do a review for us?
Your sock looks great! I like the added dog hair:)
I actually did write one a while back! https://bonnyknits.com/2019/09/29/review-smartstix-dpns/
Thanks! I must have missed it.
Happy February! I didn’t watch the Super Bowl either. I didn’t even know who was playing in the game until today. LOL
Very cool new needles!
Lol! I’m not a sportsball fan in general. Knitting is much more interesting!
A whole month without buying yarn – woo hooooo! I did that too, but considering the size of my stash already I’m not sure I count that as an achievement :p

I really like your socks. I don’t even notice dog hair, as I’m constantly covered in it.
Nice needles! And I’m with you about the sportsball.
