And here they are in all their glory, er, in my kitchen. Ta dah!
I just can't believe how quickly the second sock went. I started it Sunday morning, and just finished the toe decreases this morning before work. Amazing!
I think they turned out so pretty, I just love the pattern. It's easy to follow, and the results are impressive. Not bad for my second ever pair of socks, huh?
If you're interested in that sort of thing, these were made with Gems Pearl Merino in crabapple on a set of 5 size 2 dpns.
Now I just don't know what to work on until my mail-order stuff gets here. I've been wrestling with a scarf pattern from the oddly-shaped scarf book (I can't remember the title). I bought the yarn for it a while ago, but was never able to make much progress on it. Then last week that book was featured on Knitty Gritty and they showed how to make this particular scarf, the one with the crossovers.
Well, I've been trying to make it work, watching the video over and over, but I just can't get my crossovers straight. So I got frustrated and gave up for now.
I probably should get started on the second sock for the pair that's going to my sister. It's so very boring though. Hmmm. I'll have to think about it for a bit.
