Onward

Saturday I finished the first pair of Noro Kureyon socks. I'm not sure that they'll last very long. The thin spots are really thin and in other spots super thick. I still have yet to block them which should even them out even more. The colors are a little funky but mom likes them. I'm sure she has just the right outfit for them.


Specs:
Pattern: Generic Toe-Up with short-row heel
Yarn: Noro Kureyon Sock color S184
Needles: 0 dpn's for ribbing & 1 US dpn's & addi 4" circular for magic loop
Size: 10
Started: February 1, 2009 Finished: February 14, 2009

I purchased this lone skein of Berroco Sox Metallic at the Greenville Knit Inn. I'm making a pair of River Rapid Socks for mom.



In addtion to the socks and the Viveca cardigan I've also cast-on the Melon Pattern for a Shawl from Victorian Lace Today. I originally started this project last summer but for some reason I found the Kidsilk Night difficult to knit. It is a gift for a neighbor who grew up with us and turned 50 last August. I've been avoiding the project and casted-on last night. Whatever difficulties I have had are now resolved and I've completed almost 10 rows on it. At the current rate I should have it finished pretty soon and on its' way to Alabama.

My knitting mojo has returned in full force and I've been knitting almost every day. I have several projects that I would really like to accomplish this year some of which are quite challenging and at this rate I may be able to complete most if not all them.

I rather like the colors in the first pair of socks. Nice work, as always.
