Rnd13?

I've lost track of what round I'm on...it's been so long since I've posted a big post! I have photos today...brace yourselves!

I have a new project. 2 socks on 1 circular. Toe up pattern of my own devising (with a little help from my friends...). Fingering yarn on size 2 circs (I caved and bought a pair of Inox, lovely needles to knit with, but the join sucks.).

It all started like this:


Which is this lovely yarn:

Check it out...it comes with its own reinforcement yarn! I found that to be totally amazing. Yes, I know, it doesn't take much to impress me.

So, I began with a Turkish Cast-On, because, well, I really wanted to use that cast-on...it's really cool. After 2 rounds, it looks like this:

and this:

nothing too impressive, but go look at the tutorial. It's really nice.

Those photos were a few days ago. Today, the socks look like this:


I've completed the increases for the toes and I'm about 5 rounds into the body of the sock. They aren't twins, but I think they are turning out quite lovely. I heart that yarn. A lot.

Till next time, may your BOs be swift, and your FOs be many!
