My 100th post

This is it, the big 100!

I'm terrible at celebrating milestones like this. Eh, whatever. lol!

ANYHOO...

I've been knitting.



Now, theoretically a mere 60 stitches on 2.5mm needles (slippery Knit Picks needles at that!) should fly... but it's just not. I feel like it's going very slow here. I shortened the cuff and leg to a mere 4+ inches. A nice summer length in my opinion. I have decided that they should have named this "Peaches and Cream", not Vanilla Cream. Peaches suits it much better. Hub agreed he was suprised that I chose this color for myself. And I think in just about any other pattern, I probably wouldn't have liked it. But it really suits this one. The yarn itself... splitty... yes indeedy! I've gotten pretty used to working with it now. It's not really bothering me much. I think the super pointy needles are helping. If I were using say... some Brittany Birch... I'd probably want to shoot myself.

But oh... when I slide my foot into it... sooo silky... yummy indeed. I can't wait to have them done. I wish they'd hurry along!

Congratulations on the blog milestone.

I put the feel of the yarn first. Especially for something to go on my feet.
