One Shall become two



I made it!!I finished the second sock during socktoberfest. Even though, I didn't officially join. I can say I am the proud owner of 2 handmade socks. I need to throw them in water and block, but they are done. It really wasn't as bad as I thought.I was afraid I'd succumb to the dreaded second sock syndrome. As I mentioned previously, I love the 2 circ method, it seemed much easier than DPN's. Now I'd like to progress to 2 socks on 2 circs, and the toe up with short row heels.





Now that these are done, I can finish some of the other projects on my side bar or cast on Ella. I received some very pretty handpainted laceweight cashmere yarn from my Secret pal. I'll post pictures tomorrow if I can get a good shot in daylight. Now I must find the perfect project to showcase this yummy yarn. Thanks so much SP.

Great job on the TWO purple footies. I have a pair that look almost the same! I wear them all the time.

Thanks for the kind words. I'm not sure why I resisted so long. I will definitely make more.
