Starting small

I'm so excited about knitting Arisaig that I couldn't even wait to finish spinning the yarn before I cast on.

The pattern starts off with 10 rows of 2x2 rib on tiny needles (2.25mm). I only have this size in a pair of Prym metal straights.

These are the suckers that the airlines have in mind when they tell you that knitting needles are dangerous objects. It's going to be a relief to finish my ten rows and move onto the relatively chunky size of 2.75mm I can tell you.
