Finished: Knitty Twist


Happy Monday, friends! I hope you all had a great weekend. Anemone came down for the weekend and we went to karaoke and to see the High School fall play. It was great to see her and have some sister time. I also wove in the ends on my mum's new socks over the weekend!

I am so happy to be finished with these. Longtime readers might remember when I started them a year and a half ago I had planned to knit them two-at-a-time on a long circular. Well, that plan crashed and burned, and I went back to my trusty DPNs.

I'm very happy with how these turned out, and my mum loves them. (Look at them, why wouldn't she? They're adorable.) Once I actually pulled these out of hibernation and really got into them, I really enjoyed knitting them. The tiny cables were a delight, and they were great lunch knitting-just complex enough to be interesting, simple enough to pick up and put down at a moment's notice, and small enough to carry around.

I've still got a few pairs of socks on the needles, but they're all for me. I'm hoping to get them done soon, because my sock drawer could use some fortification, but I've got a few different design projects in the works that are taking up most of my attention right now.
