... i just couldn't wait until the day of light (and i don't think there will be much light tomorrow, as i think rain is in the forecast) to take proper pictures. but, i finally started my bmp socks. yay!
note: this is my first *real* fairisle knitting project. i did not swatch. i figured it was going to turn out hideous, so i decided that the knitting could be my swatch. turns out, it's working. i'm having problems with my tension where i switch needles (being knitted via the single circular method). it's big. it fits the leg. it will be baggy at the ankle. i should probably figure out where to decrease before then, and possibly read ahead in the pattern. it's addictive. i didn't think i had it in me for fairisle, but perhaps i do. i'm holding the black yarn in my right hand (as i would normally do, throwing in my funky shuttle way) and the off white with my left hand (picking). it's a bit slow. but, it works!
