Tour de Fleece

  1. Not that I think it will change your decision, but just as a note...the 64 stitches on the Eunice sock go up to 80 stitches as soon as you are done with the ribbing. Which is good, you'll need the extra give!

  2. I have 2 pair of Signature circs, US 6 & 7, I think. I am knitting a shawl with one of them and I love them! The cable is wonderful! I am also waiting for 2mm-3.25mm circulars for my sock knitting. I am so not a dpn person.

  3. I always have to go up a needle size for any Cookie A socks I knit... Your Glynis socks look great!!

  4. I also hope that Signature comes out with some sock-useful circulars. I always lose dpns so I don't want to spend the money for them, but a size 2, stiletto point circular would be great!!
