Well... it didn't work. But this past weekend I finally completed one of my more pathetic over-a-year WIPs.
Pattern: Leyburn Socks (Ravelry link)
Yarn: Socks That Rock Lightweight in Carbon Dating
Yes, the Leyburn socks are finally done! The pattern is pretty easy to memorize, easy to knit even while watching TV, and cute. I really liked the yarn...
When I first started it the floats threw me off a bit and I thought it wouldn't be a good idea to try these guys 2 at a time, so I didn't and that was the trouble. I don't know what it is about knitting single socks but I never get them done in anything close to "normal" time. But here they are and I can cross another WIP off the long list. :)
Other than a secret project and a non-sock gift, the best contender for next FO is my Twists and Turns twin socks with MJ. That or the stockinette Mini Mochi sock that lives in my bag for bus knitting.
I'm also making good progress on Blurple Waves - I'm on the 5th ball at the moment and making a goal to knit a full ball of yarn or more each month this year.
I've also been taking a photo every day this year for Project 365 (those are all my pictures there). The theme this week is clutter and that's brought a couple of knitting-related pictures, so I thought I'd share.
