Finished: 4 Socks

Over the past few months I've finished 4 socks, and by a huge stroke of luck, they match up into pairs! Funny how knitting works out like that, almost as if it has been planned. The first pair is Spring Forward, which you all should definitely knit, because it's a great pattern. And if you can't knit, oh well, sucks for you. [If you don't knit, please tell me, what do you do while you're doing something else? If you watch a movie, do you just sit there and watch the movie? Please explain.] I used Tess' Designer Yarns Super Sock.


Next up are the socks that would not die. I divided the yarn in half by weight, and started knitting from the toe up until the yarn ran out. I'm pretty sure that each night, small gnomes unraveled a few rows and wound the yarn back onto the ball. That's the only explanation for why these took over TWO YEARS to knit. That, and they were knit on size 0 needles. Members of my knitting group can attest to me frequently groaning and whining, "Uggghhh I don't even WANT these socks anymore." I hate you, socks, and will wear you all the time just to spite you. [The yarn is Schoeller+Stahl Fortissima Socka Cotton Color.]


To my brother-in-law, who says I never look at the camera when I take pictures of finished knits: I totally was looking at the camera in every single one of these pictures.

Those Spring Forward socks are fantastic!

Since I am not a knitter I embroider when I watch movies or TV. Unless it's something with subtitles, then I just have to sit and watch. It makes me antsy.

Beautiful socks. I can totally tell you were looking at the camera. :)

Doesn't he know that looking at the camera is for nerds? Also, I can't imagine just sitting and watching a movie. I get so bored! Nice socks, by the by :)
