My Harlotty Socks

Yarn: Socks That Rock in Harlotty colorway
Needles: US 1
Start Date: July 20, 2007
End Date: August 1, 2007
Comments: These socks are the project I worked on while reading Harry Potter 7. Cast-on was the magic 8, which is my new favorite thing to do. The yarn is just yummy and I'm super happy that I frogged back to change the pooling effect of the colors. Amazing what a few stitches will do to the pattern. The bind-off was a picot edging, which I've also fallen in love with.
Guess who wanted to be apart of the action...
I've also gotten back on the KAMS (Kool-Aid Mackenzie Sweater)...here is a shot of the two fronts being knit together...awww.
It's coming along great and I can see this will knit up quick. Don't you just love baby knits...gosh, super fast.
So, the next big thing coming is Stitches Midwest. Only 8 more days people. 8. More. Days. I seriously need to think about what I'll bring to knit and what I'm thinking about buying. Blue Moon Fiber wont be at the convention this year, but there are plenty of opportunities for sock yarn. I think my intention will be in finding a great yearn for a pattern I have on hand. Okay, now it's a matter of figuring out which pattern.
