Apparently I Can Knit

Well, as woozy as my head is feeling today, apparently I can still knit. I had about 15 rounds of 2/2 ribbing left on Dan's socks and I was actually able to get that done today! It took me at least three times as long as it normally would and the bind off was almost a bit too thinky for my brain, but I managed to get it done! So now Dan has his first official pair of handknit socks!

Dan's Wilderness Socks

Wild, huh? Dan does like his orange (and orange and gray) yarns! The are wool & buffalo, which should help them not wear out. Of course, with temperatures in the high 80s, I don't think Dan will get a chance to test that for a number of months yet!

Project details (and a few progress pics) are on my Ravelry project page. Yay socks!

Next up: more socks! Seriously, not what I intended. I have things planned out. I need to get my purse lining done like yesterday (which means I must learn to use my sewing machine) but instead I got sucked into a test knit to try to convert sock patter (that I wanted to make anyway) from cuff down to toe up. Lord help me! I can't wait!
