knit: let there be socks!

Ok. I’m still thrilled the black socks are done.

Do you like my new progress bars on the side? (RSS readers, hey, you know what to do) They are from Eve who rocks. :)

I’ve figured out two socks on two circs. I slightly cheated and started them on dpn’s and then transfered to the circs. I’m on a 12″ and a 16″. .. I really like the 12, despite what others may say. They fit really nice in my hand and I feel I kinda zoom zoom. Which is good. I feel it’s ok to be selfish and make one for me and one gift. (thus why you won’t see much of the gift one… but mine? I’ll share.)

Here are a bunch of really yucky camera phone pics. I’m doing the blue one with a slip stitch rib (from sensational knitted socks) and Yvonne’s in a baby cable (from the same wonderful book). I love both and hope to get better photos soon. I wrote this late Tuesday night when I returned home from class and there was already a layer of ice and some snow on the ground…

These first two are the best colour representation I can get until I have a chance to have a good camera and daylight in the same place. They were taken with a real camera on Monday. The rest are dark camera phone photos. Do you like my 49¢ mittens? They’re for little kids but they stretch a TON!

Oh and it’s V-Day.. let’s do something!
