We've got a finished Falling Leaves sock here! This is my first time doing a 1x1 rib. I always seem to do a 2x2. I don't know why, I think it's just automatic. I was smart this time, and bound off with a 3.25mm needle, so the top is stretchy enough to get over my heel.
Um, I think I've given all the sock specs in my last few posts, so take a look there for all the info. I don't want to get to repetitive :)
I've got to cast on for the second one today, so I have knitting to do on the bus and on my breaks, but I'm feeling tempted to cast on for a totally different pair. I've got some lovely Koigu staring me in the face. I didn't realize how lacking Koigu was in yardage before I bought it, so I only have 2 skeins in each of 2 colors. Does that make sense? 4 in total. 2 colors. Yeah, I think that makes sense. Anyway, I was thinking of doing a toe up short sock or something. I haven't totally decided.
I am totally craving knitting books right now. I just want to buy and buy and buy, but I've been good, and haven't bought anything. I still haven't got my first pay cheque and my credit card bills are huge, so I'll have to hold off for a while yet.
I think I'm going to distract myself by making a heart shaped chocolate cake, using my new Tupperware heart-shaped silicone cake thing. Do you know that I didn't used to like chocolate cake? I couldn't stand it, and wouldn't eat it under any circumstances. Actually, at one point I had a boyfriend who actually cried because I wouldn't have any chocolate cake. Seriously! I couldn't believe it. That wasn't even his worst quality. Hopefully you can have a laugh at the thought of that.
