Gold Medal Progress

Yup! Sock #1 of the Olympic socks done, cast off and sewn up. I just cast it off! I purposely took a crappy pic for you because I can't wait to show you the finished project. They are lovely. Simply, perfectly, amazingly lovely and I'm so excited to get #2 off the needles and stretch these babies out and show you the pattern. To date my most favorite pair of socks I've ever made. I'm completely a Cookie A convert! Her patterns are straight forward and easy to read, not to mention stunning. I'll definately have the guts to try more of her stuff!!

I think I'm definately going to sign myself up for more projects next Olympics because while these socks have been fun, I know I could have knit more. Next year, more challenges! So far it's been pretty fun!

I've hit a baby snag in the sock progress this evening... I've been distracted by this:

I finally got my grubby little paws on the New Vogue Knitting. It's a good thing too, especially if my paws are grubby because the mitten pattens in this magazine are so nice- they'll make a lovely cover to said grubby paws! Just look at these...

I. WANT. TO. MAKE. THEM. RIGHT. NOW! Oh tempting and lovely projects... why do you taunt me?

Okay, must dash- I've got an Olympic sock to finish and baby hats to make so I can move onto bigger and more exciting projects. Can I finish sock #2 before the weekend? Only time will tell!
