These 64 stitch socks would never have fit my narrow feet using my old 2.5mm Addi Turbos.
The Options 2.25mm needles are opening all kinds of new pattern possibilities for me. And I love the points on them.

I had forgotten how soft this yarn feels. It's a very pleasurable knit so I'm trying to enjoy the process and not hurry.
At the same time, I'm trying to hurry because I need to get these socks in the mail soon if they're going to make Idaho by the 10th, Anne's birthday.
