I am ashamed!

This is going to be a quick post because I need to go to work in an hour. Here's a FO!


Pattern: No pattern. Plain stockinette socks.
Yarn: Opal feelings, colour 1704
Needles: 2.25 mm bamboo dpns

I am very happy with them, they're very comfortable and cute. I just wish the brown sequence didn't go so long (it's actually a lightish brown, followed by a slightly darker brown, followed by the lightish brown again, but it just looks like a huge brown stripe).

That being said, I am ashamed. When I uploaded the pic in my Photobucket FO account, I realized that this pair of socks is only my SECOND finished project this year!!! The only other thing I've made in 2008 is a pair of fuzzy mittens (which I have lost, btw).

I know I had lost my knitting mojo for most of the year and there was a lot going on in my life, but seriously, two FOs by May? It's crazy!

I'm hoping to have #3 soon, as I have wound the yarn for Cable Net sock #2. It will probably take me a long time to finish them because of all the tiny cables, but I'll do my best.

Two FOs. I can't believe it.

I don't have too many more FO's than you - so don't feel bad! I have 4.5 (.5 for the wee mini sock I made for a swap, LOL).

The socks look great!

I know what you mean, I have no idea how I managed to have 23 FOs by the end of last year!
