Catching up

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.

Hee hee hee. I didn't think feet came any smaller than yours. I guess I was wrong. Though a cute sacale I think they are about equal -:]
