happy socktober!

It’s October! Time for Socktoberfest!

My husband’s been bugging me for a warm and cozy pair of socks for almost two years now (ever since I knit a pair of socks for his dad for Christmas). I figured since I had the yarn, I’d better cast on! It’s the perfect time for it, huh?

Happy Socktober!

I’ve completed 22 rounds now. I’m past the “wrestling with a spider” stage of working with dpns and I’m starting to enjoy this project (especially since I now know how to knit Continentaly; a K2 P2 rib is fun!). My husband can’t wait.

I love how this photo turned out. It was just a quick snapshot, but my camera makes me feel like a professional. I adore it! ::mm-wuah::

    I really need to remember to watermark my photos when I post them. Argh.
