Vesper Broadripples aka the fastest socks I ever knit
Yarn: Vesper Sock in Crew
Needles: 2.25 mm Inox, magic loop
Pattern: Broadripple from Knitty, modified to fit my gigantor feet.
Started: August 16, 2007
Finished: August 31, 2007

Absolutely love the Vesper sock yarn. I see a lot more of this in my future! I could make much taller socks for my enormous (womens US10.5/EU41) feet with just one skein, maybe even knee socks. I have a LOT of yarn left.

We got sent home from work early today… so I’ve been listing some items on eBay and working on the latest socks. For my mum… in Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock in “Gold Hill”. I was a bit apprehensive about the colorway when it arrived on my doorstep, but after a go from my mum, I got knitting and as it turns out, I love it, and if I can part with these socks my mum will be very pleased :)

Close up:

Also one of the FO’s I promised before…

Piratey Socks for M (arr!)
Yarn: Yarn Pirate in Inferno
Started: shortly after X-mas
Finished: February 4, 2007 (I think)
Needles: Knitpicks 2.0mm

He loves the socks. I love the yarn. I hope some time in the future I’ll be able to get my hands on some more!

And yes, sometimes I knit things other than socks… heh.

Okay, I just got a big order of Malabrigo… which I so love. I have knit with it before and I consider it to be one of the best yarns out there….

Which is why I am so upset that it REEKS OF VINEGAR.

Like, it is actually STINKING UP MY CUBICLE.

Mreh.

ETA: Also, I have knit with this colorway before too (verdeazul)… and while I like this, it has MUCH more variation than the other skein did. I mean, I wouldn’t even consider this the same colorway.
