I’ve finished one of my Mysterious Green Socks but I haven’t had a chance to take a proper picture of it. Here is a progress shot of it, sans the toe, and in the car. Pardon the terrible-ocity of it, I took it on my phone:
I finished it on Saturday. It turned out really lovely, but I’m having a bout of second sock syndrome. Even though it fits okay, I’m still hung up on the teeny tiny gusset. I feel like it would fit better if I’d made the heel flap an extra repeat longer. Meh! Hopefully I can make myself start the second one soon, because it really is pretty, and it needs a mate.
Also on Saturday, I got a pretty skein of Malabrigo Worsted from my aunt. It’s reddish-pinkish-maroonish… very accidentally Valentine’s Day. I’m using it to make Quest (the cloche version) from the new Knitty. I’m through the increases… and it’s now being put on hold until I can get the right size circular needles. Boo.
In non-knitterly, I’ve been pretty busy with classes recently. They’re all really reading-heavy, and they’re taking up a big chunk of my knitting/pattern writing time. Ha. Aaaaand, I’ve also had a couple interviews for a job! (FINALLY! YAY!!) I should know for absolutely sure by the end of this week whether I got it or not. Cross your fingers for me!
