Making Progress

Just a quick post today to show off a pair of completed Christmas socks. These are the Simple Socks with a Slant form Cat Bordhi's latest book (I am obsessed with that book). I originally intended a pair of Roza's socks for the BF's sister, but let's face it, big yarn on big needles for little feet equals a faster finish. I learned a few new things form making these, and that always makes me happy. I can now perform Judy's Magic Cast-On without aide or instruction (sorry to J. for the repeated demos!) and can knit a decent toe up sock without holes along the heel. Sweet. They make a nice home for cold feet.
Next up? A pair of socks for my mom. She wanted lace or cables, I opted for the wavy cables of the Uptown Boot Sock from Interweave Knits 25 Favourite Socks. This is my first attempt at knitting cables so let's hope for the best!
