FO!

It's spring break! Which means I can actually post something! Sorry to be absent for so long. This "accelerated degree" thing takes up pretty much all of my time.

On to the good stuff.

FO: Ivy Socks
Pattern: Plain toe-up socks with a leaf panel insert found in Rose's stitch dictionary.
Yarn: 2 skeins Simply Scarves Hand-dyed Superwash Sock II
Needles: US 2's, pretty sure I used circ's
Started: 01/12/09, Completed: 01/16/09 (during my mini-vacay in SF)

I love these. They keep me toasty warm and on dreary SoCal days (yes, it happens) they are just bright enough to cheer me up. I used this tutorial from misocrafty to do the short-row heels. This is the best short-row heel that I've found. No holes!!!

The only thing is... well... I did 3 out of 4 sides of the short-row heel BACKWARDS. Yep, with the purl bumps on the outside. It would have been fine if I had done them all that way, but nope, I just had to go and do one side right. It's cool, these only took 4 days to finish. I KNOW! I never finish socks that quickly. And I probably never will again. It must be love.
