OUT of Control and LOVING IT!
Ok...Umm...

I've lost all CONTROL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Last wk. I ordered some Boye dpns in sizes 3-6, clover dpns size 6, 8. Then a few days after that some Bryspun 5" dpns, sizes 3-8.

Yesteday decided to order the other 2 boye dpns I was missing size 1, and 2. Ordered from Herrschners. Worked out good too..cuz I had recieved there catalog in the mail w/ a coupon for free s/h with no minimum purchase. So...

Then today ordered a set of Bryspun 7.5" dpns sizes 6-10. Also ordered some Brittany dpns 5" sizes 1-8.....and 7.5" sizes 6-10.

WHEW!! I was not sure if I should go ahead and order the Brittany's but dh is like order them. Go ahead :D

Then ....we go to Barnes n' Noble supposedly just for 20 mins. Well...we end up being there for almost 2 hrs. My dh got his comp./gadget/electronic mags, ds got 2 bks., and dd got some reading bks.

Me? Umm..LOL I've been totally obsessed w/ socks lately. As you can see with all the needle buying.
Anyway here are the bks. I got:

Sensational Knitted Socks : Really AWESOME! LOVE IT!! Tons of info!
Knitting Vintage Socks : Very interesting
Knit Socks! (the lil sock shape one)
The Knitting Answer Book (sm. lil reference bk.) Cool deal!

..and my non-knitting bk. that I had wanted since I heard it was coming out..."For Laci" by Sharon Rocha. (also got my mom a copy she had been wanting to read it as well...)

I don't know where I'm gonna find time to read "For Lacy"...but I HAD TO GET IT! I thought of getting the CD ...but I enjoy reading it. So I'm gonna have to MAKE TIME.

LMAO!! Too funny!!

He was calling me from asking me, "What's the deal..Did you order your needles?" I was like..."Umm, not yet..." ( I was unsure of what to order..just wanted to make sure I was making the right decision..He's like, "Go ahead and order 'em...if not you can exchange it for yarn or whatever." I'm like,..."Ya, that's true."

Then he gets home later that today and I'm ordering it and just about to click SUBMIT ORDER...and I start questioning if I should order all the Brittanys and a few more Bryspun. He sits next to me and clicks SUBMIT.
He's like,"there too late now.." I guess no more thinking about it.

YAAAAY! I'm so glad there is someone else out there that gets excited over double pointed needles!!! Sometimes I feel like the only freak that likes them. I'd love to know what you think of the Brittanys...I've been thinking about buying some. I recently started a sock obsession, as well, and have been wondering about where to get shorter double pointeds.

heehee!!!!!!!! Yep, dpns.

Actually..I love having the option of using different materials for needles. I get bored VERY EASILY..VERY! So it's fun to choose which needle I feel like using for whatever I'm working on.

Now that I think about it.... :thinking: I just LOVE NEEDLES!!! Got the collecting bug I guess...sigh

Yep, these will be my first 5" needles. I can't wait to try 'em out after hearing how much people like the shorter ones for socks. I'll have to post a lil review of 'em once I get them and get some socks goin'.

See you're not the only one that obsesses and loves dpns, and socks!!!!! hehee!

KNITBIT <--highly obsessed and happy
