The Socks, they are finished
I did finish the second sock! But I must admit, I felt like I was doing the 50 km crosscountry ski race while I was doing it. Around and around on those tiny needles! But I am extremely pleased with the result and I don't think I'll take these socks off for a week or two, they feel so great! But I don't think I will use these bamboo Size 0 needles again. Can you tell which four I used on the socks? The unused needle is on the bottom. I can't believe how these bent out of shape and it got pretty annoying at the end. (Do the skiers ski with bent skis? I think not.) I have gotten a bunch of Susan Bates sock needles and I'm going to switch to those. (Thanks, Ann, for suggesting them.)
So what's next? Hats for Lenten knitting and giving, a pink scarf for Project Spectrum, and...
This is all you're going to see of the yarn for a while until it gets knit up some. The pattern will be Openwork Rib from Sensational Knitted Socks. And it's not going to be on Size 0 needles!
Closing ceremonies and swatching time!
