photo of socks

Just a quick post for a pic.

Here is a picture of the two socks and the two circs. The little feet belong to A. Little socks for little feet = less knitting. So far I am liking it and as I said before it will be wonderful to be done with both socks at once. I have a friend who kept shaking her head every time I would talk about trying this. I don't think she thought it was worth it. Of course, unlike me, she knits really fast.

M is tired of hearing about my knitting so I thought I would start a blog. Most likely this will mean that I am telling no one about my knitting, other than my knitting friends, but hey it will give me something to do late at night.

I have just started my first pair of 2 socks on 2 circs. I'm pretty excited about it. I really like making socks since I am a slow knitter and they are relatively fast. Not exactly instant gratification, but close. Finishing both at once seems like it will be a big bonus. I was having trouble using the right needle at the right time, I kept picking up the wrong one. So today I came up with a brilliant plan, I drew a line in paint pen around each needle on the circs using different colors for each needle. Now if I'm knitting off of a purple needle I should be knitting onto a purple needle as well. I'll post pics after the camera batteries are done charging.
