Happy New Year, everyone!
Not much knitting news to report. . .
I finished my Firestarter socks and have already worn them:
Tiny feet (for scale, I guess) provided by Jimmy's nephew Noel.
I ended up knitting the second sock twice, somehow it ended up too long in the foot the first time. I think my tension got looser, and maybe I added an extra round in the pre-gusset stage. Anyway, it was quick to reknit and now they fit perfectly.
Sadly, the rest of my knitting projects have gone awry. I started a pair of mittens and ran out of yarn. I made a sock and decided it was too pink. I tried 3 different sock patterns with a lovely red yarn, but none of them seemed right.
Oh well, I have a lot of yarn and a lot of other patterns and ideas I'd like to try out. I'm sure I'll be back to juggling too many socks and sweaters and squids in no time.
