especially when i take a look at the calendar :)
because here i was all disappointed that i hadn't finished these in time for the kal deadline (which i had set) and then i realized that hrmmm the last day of january is totally still part of the kal! i finished these babies with 10 minutes to spare on january 31. yes people, i pushed on until midnight to finish them!
and? i love them :) i made one little boo-boo that i can think of and that is making the foot a little long, but meh.. that's all good in my books.
i am a big fan of this yarn. and from what i've been hearing, you are too! these colours are fab. and i love how the stripes are turning out. pretty cool for this pattern.
at the beginning of the project, i was totally digging the small yarn and small needles. and i think i still like them, but i also think it's nice to even it out with projects on larger needles too.
it's not my only sock pattern to tackle... buuut, probably my only skew. for a while anyways.
i didn't hate knitting it at all. it's just strange to me in it's construction. and i think i've mentioned before that it would be nice to have some mindless sock knitting. sometimes the most basic of socks can be a fave. .... so long as you have the right yarn :)
when i bought the yarn for this project, i was seriously planning on using an entire skein for each sock. i got close. here's what i'm left with. ...
i just really wanted to be wearing the socks already, and i think that they were getting long enough. what do you think?
so wahoooo for me for getting them done on time! and now i've got to get knitting! babies have been born and they need some knitted gifts!! my knit night girls are all getting together to do a group order with knitpicks (so exciting when it arrives, it's like christmas day for us all!) and i'll be picking yarn for gifts.. i'll be sure to share with you once i decide on pattern and yarn! this will be my first big yarn order and i'm pretty excited!
so how about you? have you caught yourself staring at the calendar, and then realizing you actually have already accomplished something you thought you didn't? do you go together with friends to do group orders? do you stick to your guns on what you'll order or are you easily swayed to order what everyone else is ordering...'cause it's pretty. hahah let's hope that doesn't happen to me! i always love hearing from you, let's chat! have a beautiful thursday, full of little surprises :) xo
