I finished another Christmas item recently, and finally got around to uploading the pics to ravelry. Don’t forget to check out my comment contest for the month of November! You can comment on ANY POST in November for entries ^_^
I started a pair of socks earlier in the week, but realized too late that I didn’t have enough yarn to finish them. I did that thing that knitters do where they pretend that there’s no problem and just keep on knitting. *sigh* I have come to my senses, ripped it out, and started again with a toe-up pattern. I also had the sense to divide the ball in half, so I would be sure to use the right amount. I’ll probably get a nice pair of shorty socks. I’m much happier with the progress I’m getting now anyway.
