... or The Snowflake.
Sometimes you just have to be silly, or sillier than usual, as the case may be. A conversation can spark an idea for a ring that is just too good to let go of, and before you know it, you have this:
It turns out that many of us have strong feelings about the US size 8 knitting needle. It is the Goldilocks of needles; it is just right. My friend, Shannon, commented that if she had a gauge ring it would only need one size, size US 8. I found it so comical, that I felt compelled to make it. This is just a sneak preview of the ring in its 3D rendered form (in other words, it does not physically exist yet.) Right now I am only making a couple of them, but if you have a great love the US 8, and would buy this ring, leave a comment either here on the blog, or on the Facebook post that will accompany this, and if there is enough interest, I will start making them to order.
And in case you are wondering, that is a size 8 ring, with 8 holes in US 8. We all need a silly distraction sometimes. Thanks, Shannon.
