7 1/2 " US 1 Brittany DPN’s…anybody? anybody?

For some reason, in the whole Columbus, Ohio area there is not one pair of 7 1/2″ US 1 Brittany DPN’s anywhere. Miss Tonia and I have canvased the LYS’s and not a set to be seen. But, there’s always ebay…and low and behold I have located a set on there and I bought them on the “buy now” plan. I wish they would have had 2 sets and then Miss Tonia could have got her’s too. Jaywalker’s must be a hit here in Central Ohio ’cause US 1’s in just about any brand are hard to come by. Oh, by the way…here are the pics of the baby blanket I finished:

Up close and personal even. I like how the seed stitch turned out. It really made a nice edge for this blanket.

And here is a full frame view, a little dark but when I used the flash for some reason on the pic it looked like it was glowing. But after washing and blocking the finished dims are 33 x 37. Not bad for a baby blanket.

I am almost done with my booga bag so I will have pics of it soon. I just have a few more inches to finish on the handle and then I’ll take my before felting pic.

I cannot wait until the end of this month…that’s when SecretPal8 should begin and I am so joining this time. This whole blog thing is still a little new to me but I think I’m gettin’ the hang of it and I really like it. I never thought I would say this…but I really enjoy reading other people’s blogs and seeing all of the great projects they are working on and some really awesome patterns too. And leaving comments on things that spark my interest. So please feel free to just drop a note anytime even if it’s just to say hey.

Almost time to get the heck outta the office (YAY) C-ya

    I bought size ones yesterday so that I could make Jaywalkers. Mine are nowhere close to 7 1/2 inches though, more like 4. They are some small needles. They work pretty well for the socks though. When I went to the LYS by my house they were out of Brittanys, and the other brands they carried didn’t make ones. Now that I searched for ones I have a feeling my socks are going to be a bit too small. Good luck with them.

    Oh, and I know what you mean about reading other peoples blogs. I an obsession with reading as many as I can from the Knit Ohio ring. Something about them being from the same state just makes it so much more interesting.

    Your blanket looks great! Goodluck with the jaywalkers – I’m still too much of a wuss to try sock knitting. I’m in Secret Pal 7 and it has been very fun…I’m sure you’ll have a ball with SP8!

    and Ashley – I’m glad you’re enjoying Knit Ohio!
