I'm joining Ginny this week to show you the progress I've made on my socks. Not much, it seems, but there's a lot of knitting there, I guarantee.
I am knitting two at the same time, for those of you who have not seen this project yet. I love this knitting two at the same time, for the obvious reason (when you finish one sock you don't have to start over again), but I do spend a lot of time untangling the two strings of yarn.
The sock pattern is the diagonal lace in Socks from the Toe Up by Wendy Johnson (click on the pattern name -- look you don't even have to buy the book) and the yarn is KnitPicks Stroll Fingering in Peapod. I already mentioned in a previous post, that it has a really nice feel and should make nice warm socks, but it splits a lot. The needles are new nickel-plated needles which I do like more than I thought I would. They're a little slippery on the yarn, but I like how they feel in my fingers.
My book is Thyroid Power: 10 Steps to Total Health. So far the author has just tried to convince me that I have thyroid issues, which I already know. I may have to skip ahead to see if there is anything worth the $0.01 plus $3.99 shipping I spent to get it used from Amazon.
