Cold Feet

I cannot fall asleep when my feet are cold, and it takes them forever to warm up when they get cold. And the weird thing is my feet sweat even when cold, so adding socks or slippers doesn't really help all that much.

So since most of my socks are cotton, I felt motivated to finally break out the sock yarn I bought a year ago - only to find that I need smaller dpns, 2 will be too loose a knit.

It's the middle of the night, and freezing outside, with inches of snow already fallen and more yet to fall, but since I don't know if the lys has really reopened with the new owner or not (phone # doesn't work). And I don't think Joann's or Hobby Lobby keep in stock the size 1 or 0 bamboo dpns, I think I might skip the sock yarn, and just use wool yarn for a slipper pattern. Wool is supposed to wick away moisture, and, well, I have more Paton's Classic Wool and needles the right size to use with it. But maybe making thick socks would be a good idea - cause my feet freeze quickly when I'm snowblowing...
