So, I finished knitting my first sock ever.

[I thought of making another Lost Virginity joke, but it just felt a little stale]

They're actually for Guy, but my feet are cuter.

Anyhow, pictures.

[I had to rephotograph as it wouldn't be conducive to sock-worship if people were confused by the why-is-Angela-making-socks-for-Yeti? question]

So, I finished another pair of mittens.

For me this time.

They're fuzzy and warm but not too thick.

Love them.

If the picture looks odd it's because I took it myself, with the camera under my chin and my hands extended in front.

Slightly awkward.

wrap it up

So, I was in my new favourite store (Unwind: Yarn House), when I saw these knitting-needle-holder-organizer-roll-up-type-things.

Naturally, I wanted one.

Naturally, I was too cheap to pay the $45 asking price.

Naturally, I went home and made my own.

Perfect tension

So, I finished my mittens.

The thrum was interesting to work with. A little tedious, but the results were quite good.

The best bit? Some lunatic is paying me $50 for them.

Fifty dollars FOR MITTENS.

I find I have no problem taking her money.

Oh! and I'm making a cheap-y pair for a friend at church.

He wants them to look like bumble bees, so it'll be yellow and black stripes.

No thrum in his though.
