Twitchy fingers

First up: New variation on the toe-up socks I've been churning out recently, this time in Berroco Comfort Sock, a 50/50 blend of superfine nylon and superfine acrylic. These are going to be a Mother's Day present for my mother-in-law, who should like the yarn color that Liza picked out for her.
I'm pretty pleased with how these turned out, and the pattern is easy enough that I may try writing it up to share. I don't have any knitting patterns written out yet, so it would be a nice change of pace from what I've been working on recently.

And: the triumphant completion of Eve, the sweater I made using the wrong size yarn and different size needles, but still ended up mostly the right size. And I didn't even have to frog the aborted previous sweater to get enough yarn to finish this one! How's that for awesome?

And before I get any snide remarks about my photo skills, let me point out that when one is taking photos of oneself sans makeup at 1am, it's important to make sure that the camera IS blocking your face. Trust me on this one, okay?
Hmmm, is it drafty in here, or is it just my sweater. Yeah, I thought so.

Next up: ???? Wait, I don't have a project. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh! The horror! And to think, I was less than a mile from Susan Yarns today, and I didn't have time to stop by. Bad knitter! Bad knitter!

The sweater and socks both look great! I love how the socks look stripey - self-striping yarns are among my favorites.
