The last FO of 2011

These were finished last year, I just never got around to documenting them, what with the holiday rush and whatnot. Actually I really could have, but, I just didn't feel like it. You know the feeling.

Yarn: A Goodwill find, as everyone was disappointed to hear. I really didn't enjoy knitting with it, it kind of made me a little obsessive with finding ways to get the little bobbles to appear on the right side. I'll let you know as soon as I figure that one out.

Pattern: I made it up, CO 56sts on a US 3, work in 2x2 ribbing till you get really tired of it, make a flap heel, knit the foot, and then make a toe. Easy Peasy!

These, when I worked on them, were a really quick knit. I started them late in November, but were pushed aside later when I decided to let Christmas take over my life. (We really didn't need THAT many cookies.) When I worked on them though, they just flew by. I think about a whole sock was knit at the hospital, giving me a very Clara Barton* feeling of knitting by the bedside. I finished it at Knit Nite, and sat in a Barnes and Nobel for about an hour with no shoes on, wearing these socks.

Tomorrow, Spinning! (I find I post more often when I tell you I've got something planned.)

*I recently took the Carl Jung personality test as a joke, and she was really the only person on the list of people who have my personality type that I cared to be like. (Clara Barton is the founder of the Red Cross.) The other three, and I don't know why I'm admitting this: Bill Clinton, Tony Blair, and Ronald Regan. People tell me I would make a good politician, but I really resent that.

  1. They're very warm and fuzzy looking socks! Great for tired feet, I bet.
