Socks!

Hey!  I just finished my socks!

The pattern is Pink Ribbon Socks by Laura Spradlin.  If I’d had pink yarn, I would have made them pink, but I only had purple.

The main casualty of this particular project was a set of circular needles:

I’m not entirely sure what happened.  I was working on these in one of our hotel rooms, I got up to do…something…and when I came back it was slightly bent.  I kept on knitting, but was dismayed a few days later when I went to push stitches up onto the needle and it started to bend even further!  Apparently I don’t know my own strength.

Or…since a 2nd set of needles is also starting to bend…I wonder if these are just cheap needles, and I need to find something different.

Now…to decide which knitting project takes it place.  Finishing an existing project?  Starting something new?  Hmm…..tough choices.

    those look really nice. You know you’re going to start a new project with the red white and blue yarn. Do one sock and then finish your Olympic socks. And then do the 2nd rw&b.
    Mom’s advice, rarely followed.

    I really like your socks! And like Vicki, I’ve always known you were strong! As far as what to do next? I’m in finishing mode … so I would do that, then reward yourself with something new!
