Knit monster

I learned to knit when I was about seven, on green plastic needles using blue wool to make a scarf for one of my toys, a small puppy with floppy ears. Having just completed a sock, I’m looking to do more.

The About.com sock knitting patterns index is great, most of them have photos, the only problem is I cannot find a 3mm double pointed needle for this pattern. I don’t think they exist. 2.75mm, 3.25mm, got those, but no 3mm to be found. I’d like to do these Not Really Cable socks and this basic Socks in Three Sizes with some funky variegated yarn.

Knitting: Not just for grannies.
