(In a whisper, to Mrs B.Bird) the box... pick the box...
There are two boxes with frequent bluebird sightings, but no nest building has started yet.

If I knit sock yarn on 1s it is good. I don't like 1s. If I knit them on 3's do I need a pattern to make the gauge work? I'm confused. NOT by you. My math mind is trying to grow........
Sock fabric takes a lot of abrasion and needs to be tightly knit, so when knitting socks with sock weight/fingering weight yarn I would never go larger than #1, (2.5mm). I often use the smaller #1 (2.25mm). It's not unheard of to knit fingering weight socks on 0s (2.0mm).
If you want to knit socks with #3 needles, perfectly beautiful socks can be made with sport weight yarn.

The daffodils must look a cheery splash of colour to you.
And the Goldfinches are making good progress with their molting.
Many of the Goldfinch bellies are all yellow now, but the backs still have a ways to go before the males are handsome enough to attract a mate.
