Sock update

I was excited to get the needles and yarn to try these socks, but still, I'm surprised how much I'm enjoying knitting them. I'm ready for the toe decreases on the first sock. I wasn't sure my attention span could handle such small yarn and needles, but it is knitting up faster than I thought it would. I love the way the stripy yarn makes the sock look like fancy fair isle knitting.

And yes LouLou, I got your hint, and I would love to knit you a pair. The next time you're in Des Moines I'll take you to the knitting store and let you pick out a skein of sock yarn.
