I even set Icarus aside to cast on some socks using Onlinie yarn, Supersocke 100, Walking Color #851. It's a pretty multi color green. I'm knitting the body of the sock in a K 3 P1 pattern repeat. I like it. I cast on at our gathering and have approx 4 1/2" knitted.
Sarah brought me back brass knitting wires from Gulf Wars. In comparing them to the 000 and 00 needles that I have at home, they appear to be pretty close in size to the 000, which will be perfect for the silk stockings! I LOVE them! They are so wicked cool!
I have plans to bring my new needles with me to Heralds and Scribes this weekend and work on a knitted bag with the leftover yarn from Hrodir's socks. How fun!
