Finally finished....

Can you believe I actually finished these socks. I started knitting them on June 12th. That seems like such a long time ago. These were actually my take along project. I either keep them in my purse or in a little bag that I bring with me to work and what not and try to squeeze in a row of knitting on my breaks at work and waiting in line at the bank and such. All those little knitting opportunities start to add up and one day ... they are finished. This pattern is very easy and I was able to memorize it after a while which is unusual for me.
The pattern: Salis Socks by Julia Riede (sorry no link I couldn't open her page for some reason today.. slow internet or something)
The yarn: Yarn Treehouse - Melody, color Y23
Needles: knitpicks fixed circular size 1, 47"
Knit: magic loop style.

And as always new projects follow the completed projects. I started a basic toe up sock on size 2 needles magic loop style. The yarn I have had for a long time. I was hording it for probably just these socks. It's Zwerger Garn Opal southwest. It's a self patterning yarn with purple, aqua black, white and brown. This will be my first Christmas knitting project this year. I'm trying to start early this year because I ran out of time in a major way last year. Hopefully that wont happen this year. The other new project is the Noro striped scarf from Jared Flood, Brookly Tweed which I am knitting for one of the managers at DSW. (^_^)
