I have had this beautiful Lorna's Laces yarn for forever and a day. The photo properties indicate I shot the yarn in September of last year, so I must concede this is barely a blip in the history of stash hibernation.
I had hoped the yarn would become Firestarters, but it had other plans, plans I am must admit, I am not yet privy to.
Last week I began a toe up sock on a pair of US0/2.00mm circs. I cast on 70 some odd stitches and found the fabric too tight. The colors began to pool diagonally, but since I frogged it, I can't say for sure if I would have found that to be a good thing or a bad thing.
I reduced the stitch count and began again on a pair of US1/2.50mm circs. The stitch definition was improved, no pooling was evident, but the stitches seemed a tad loose. I frogged this toe, too.
I'm hoping the 2.25mm US1's coming in the mail tomorrow will be just right. But really, I'm not sure if it is the yarn that is so persnickety, or me. I think all the fussing over needle size is me wanting to find just the right sock for this yarn. I think it has to be the most coveted colorway I have ever owned.
I'm definitely overthinking things again.
