2008: Number 1
Presenting my first FO of 2008. I actually finished them on January 1st. I hope that finishing a project on the first day of the new year is an omen for good things to come.
Yarn: Knit Picks Felici, "Clay"
Needles: U.S. size 0 (2.00 mm) DPNs
I am not ashamed to admit that I have an almost childish fondness for self-striping yarns. They are one of my guilty pleasures. So when I needed a mindless sock project for my vacation knitting, this is what I chose. Good grief, this yarn is soft! Ridiculously soft, considering the price. I have no idea how well it will wear, but as these socks are for me, I will be able to give a progress report in the future. My only complaint about the yarn is that it had small white spots at the transition between the terra cotta and red stripes. Still, I would not hesitate to knit with Felici again.
With my holiday knitting complete, I have been able to turn my attention back to my neglected spinning wheel. Here's a preview of the latest hanspun.
