A couple of nights ago, I finally switched from number one to number two needles. I have never been so thankful for anything in my life! The two and a half inches of 1x1 ribbing was done with the teeny needles and it took me about three evenings to finish it. With the nearly 200 stitches I had cast on, it was just taking forever. If you look closely at the photo, you can just barely see where the argyle diamonds are starting to form in knit stitch. Things are moving a little bit faster now!
