Finished PAIR of socks!

Image
I was starting to think I'd never actually complete a pair of socks. But I did it! The boyfriend socks are still not done (mostly because I don't like working with the yarn) but I completed a pair of socks for myself!

See!




I made anklets to see if it would be possible for me to estimate correctly without a scale and somehow I did it. I'm pretty sure my mom will manage to guilt me into giving them to her but for now I'm basking in the glow of a completed project.

Here's a close up of one of the socks.





And I spent most of my day at my LYS Lambikins and finally bought some Malabrigo sock. It's amazing and I didn't even make it out of the store without casting on for a pair of socks for me (these I'm keeping no matter what)!





This picture doesn't do the colors justice. But trust me it's beautiful even wound up in the ball! I have to also work on the boyfriend socks and when those are done, I'm absolutely using the hot pink and grey yarn.




For now I …

I'm knitting!

I'm finally able to knit again! I finished the first of the boyfriend socks, a sock for myself, started the second sock for me, and finished a piece of a messenger bag that has been staring at me for a long time. I need to take pictures and post them. It's been really overcast lately and my only real camera is my iPhone so I need to catch some natural light to make them look decent.

I'm hoping to finish all 3 of these WIPs and if so my reward will be using my amazing hot pink and grey yarn for another pair of socks for myself. I think it is completely attainable!

And on another note, knitting charts on my iPad are amazing since I can rotate and resize them with one hand! Lots of exciting happenings in my Tangled little world lately!
