One sock!

One sockIt took me awhile, but I can proudly say that I have finished my first sock since Casey was born. YAY me... using a simple sock pattern and some self striping yarn, I work on this, not worrying about the row count. I have casted on the second side and made it past the ribbing.

Thanks for the suggestion, Lise, on using thicker yarn. I do have some toys that I want to knit using worsted weight. Lots of things in my queue to do, just not enough time. I'm just super happy to be working the needles again, with some progress to show!

Happy Spring everyone!

oh no you didn't...

oh yes, I did! Just because you casted on one side of one sock doesn't mean that you should go ahead and by more sock yarn... sayz who? On a whim, I placed an order at Knit Picks for Felici that caught my eye. B.C. (before Casey) I chose more solid sock yarn so I could knit cables and lace, which don't show up well in multi colored yarn. A.C. (after Casey) I just want to pick up my needles and can't concentrate on complicated patterns... that justifies some yarn shopping right?
