Last night, I started a Latvian mitten gauge swatch using five needles, four colors and having a beautiful scalloped edge that began with a two-color cast-on. By the beginning of the fourth row, I was down a Brittany needle; by the end of the fifth, I was down two. *SNAP*
I'm setting up my photo shoots this morning while DH is making coffee and he asks, "Are those knitting needles?" His tone of voice is the incredulous "I'm prepared to be amazed," "nothing would surprise me" one.
I couldn't find any other US 1 wood needles in my collection, so started to pinch-hit with some aluminum Phildars, which, I discovered this morning, are actually US 0. This does not bode well for the Latvian swatch today, but it does make a trip to the LYS seem likely.
