Yarn: Hill Country Instant Gratification Sock Yarn superwash in Chocolate Covered Cherries (actually, I think something along the lines of "Neopolitan Swirl" would've been a little more appropriate)
Pattern: used the basic sock pattern from Sensational Knitted Socks knit on double pointed bamboo size #5 needls
And I can understand better now how the whole "second sock syndrome" thing works now. I think to keep it interesting and to keep learning more I will try to make the second one toe-up. I desprately want to learn the 2 socks on 2 circs but I tried that about a month ago and let's just say I think I should get the basics down first before I try more advanced methods.....but that's just me....always trying to skip right to the dessert!
And look at my kitty. See that black bag he's laying on? I keep my knitting in there because it zips up and is protected from evil little kitties who would otherwise love to eat it and shred all my hard work! Anyway, Simon here, he LOVES that bag. And not just because the knitting is in it. I think maybe it has some weird smell on it or something but he just rubs all over it and purrs and tries to get in it like it's a magic capret bag. And let me tell you, it would have to be a magic carpet bag for him to fit his giant belly in it.
