I finally found the perfect yarn to start knitting my Pomatomus socks (see below). At the same time I was impatient to start knitting my first pair of toe-up socks so I also started the Baudelaire (see above). So somehow I got myself into a race between the two patterns. Cookie (the designer) would probably love this. I'm pretty sure that Baudelaire would win; I find the constant twisted ribbing of the pomatomus very time consuming, beautiful results though.
For my next trick I'll be casting on to make a pair of socks for my boyfriend in Briggs & Little Durasport...and I think I'm going to join the Sock-a-Month 2 knitalong. Sock Wars looks interesting too but right now I think I would rather make socks for myself and my loved ones.
What I really don't understand, though, is why I'm SO focused on making socks now while it's SO HOT that I can't even think about wearing them!
