I'm really looking forward to these socks, whenever they get done, and I'm still convinced that this yarn is meant for this stitch pattern. Now that they're not an experiment and I know pretty well how they'll turn out, I don't feel as bad about how long it's taken me to get to this point.
On a happier note, look! Finished baby cardigan! This was an utterly charming knit, even if the sleeves were a pain. I was hoping to find some cute Irish castle-themed buttons for this, and I ended up with these horse triquetra buttons that I think are super charming. I cheated a bit on the inside ties-the pattern calls for you to knit two strands, but I just braided a couple. I think they're cute. I totally missed the baby shower deadline, but the little peanut's not due for a couple more months, so I'll get this sent off this week and everything will be hunky dory.
