she knits!

striped sock!

Look, I didn’t completely forget. I bought this yarn with Pam back in April, and I think not too long after that I cast on for these. I truly do not remember, and for some reason I didn’t blog about it or make any notes whatsoever. I’m going to have to count the stitches around the toe to figure out what the heck I did when I go to make the second sock!

it’s just so wrong

post office knitting!

I finished another pair of socks this weekend. In fact, I started them late on Saturday the 3rd (did the toe while watching a movie with a friend) and officially finished them Friday night. I blocked them this past Saturday, and they were dry and ready to go by this morning. (Hello, how’s that for a fast pair of socks! One week, start to finish.) Here’s a photo of the start of the second sock, which I worked on while waiting in line at the post office. (And can I just say that the post office features the world’s slowest-moving lines that are completely full of little old ladies . . . and that night, me. On the plus side, I got about 3/4 of an inch knit while in line!)

the Leyburn Socks are done!

leyburn!

And here they are, in my dark-apartment glory. I finished them on Friday and blocked them to get the kinks out (the design process took a few tries with these), and was determined to post them today even though it’s overcast and gray (thus not much light in the apartment) and too cold to do an outdoor shoot.
