a few things done.
it feels like it's been so long since i've had any fo's, it also feels good to get a couple of things off the needles. good lord, i just checked my ravelry and i started these suckers back in july. whaaat? 7 months to finish a pair of socks. and in a leap year no doubt. thank god for that extra day, otherwise who knows when they might have gotten done.
pattern: jaywalker by grumperina
needles: lantern moons US size 1 sox stix dpns
yarn: koigu's kpppm, color p601; about 2.5 skeins
the jaywalker pattern is a great one to use with a variegated yarn, as it's pattern is simple enough to show off the yarn, but not too plain as to be boring.
i also got the first of the basic 5x1 rib socks done.
pretty straight forward, who knows when i'll cast on for the second. i've already started a new project, a pair of go anywhere fingerless gloves. i think what i've learned is that if i work on two different "pairs of something" concurrently, i can switch between the two and not lose interest in the project so quickly. so perhaps i'll work on the first of the go anywhere's for a bit more and then cast on for the second sock...i just have to hold myself back from starting a new pair of socks, which i am so tempted to do with my recent stash acquisitions.
