Now how about some knitting?

Hey, look! I finished something!

Thanks for the opinions, all. Just to clear up any misconceptions, I was not in any way suggesting that everyone should comment on everything - just that it struck me as odd that no one had commented for a while, as I usually get a few right away, and so it brought up some issues I'd been thinking about anyway. Anyway, I now feel free to post on more "serious" topics as the spirit takes me without worrying it will drive away all my readers. Moving on.

Hey, look, proof that I still knit!

At long last, the socks from my very first Trekking. (Please ignore the spam comments on the old entries. I'm working on it. Also, I'm jealous of my own hair in the picture in that post. Why did I cut it off again?)

I like these socks, but next time I say "It's just a toe, I'll remember what I did," please remind me that it may be months until the next toe and I may not, in fact, remember. Hence the different toes on this pair. But it's just the last bit that's different, so hopefully no one will notice. Other than that, I like them.

Now I'm racing through a baby blanket for a baby born, um, three days ago. I started it... today. Oops. It's cotton, which isn't my favorite, but it's a bit more comfortable to knit in this heat. And the pattern is in my head, so I'm hoping I'll be able to knit it while doing homework and playing D&D and such. It's textured, sort of basketweavey, so not quite mindless, but not distracting. Wish me luck, or fortitude, or something.

Your socks turned out great! Probably no one but another knitter will notice the toes, and should he or she really be that close to your feet anyway?!

Good luck on the baby sweater - knit like the wind!

Cute socks! The toes look fine to me... Maybe when I get that good I'll know what you're talking about. :)

Ooh! I really like the colors.

And I wouldn't worry about different toes. I bet you're the only one who'll notice!

The great thing about socks is that shoes cover most mistakes.
