They even match!
Here are Mom's socks, finished the Fourth of July. Again, they're Fortissima Colori Socka yarn, knit on Size 2 dpns. I knit them from the cuff down, then went back and took out my cast-on row and knit upward, finishing with a tubular bind-off. And yes, I screwed up on the reinforcing thread on one toe, but Mom will live.
I couldn't resist starting a new pair right away, with purple-y Koigu KPPM, though I'm supposed to be working on something else. Oh well!
After I signed up here last week, I started messing around with Blogger, so now I have a blog, too. (I feel so 21st century!) It's linked with my name in the list on the right.
