Yay, Knitting!

See, I do knit!

Sometimes! Actually, I really like these socks (I'm still wearing them from taking the pictures...). I'm really fond of the yarn - even a stockinette pattern is much more interesting with the stripes!

Project specs:
Name: Felici Socks
Pattern: toe up stockinette w/ gussetted heel
Yarn: KnitPicks Felici Aurora colorway
Needles: US 1.5/2.5mm (I think - btw, I'm really interested in the new Harmony needles!)
Date started: August 6th, 2007
Date completed: September 7th, 2007

So now I've finally been able to use the right needles for the HSS2 socks! I started them yesterday, and this is what I have so far:

Again, I like the yarn - love the colors - and the pattern is a modified version of Groovy Socks, mostly because Katie can't count and thought it was a 6-stitch pattern, which fit perfectly into the gauge of the sock, but it turns out it is an 8-stitch pattern and I didn't want to think about the numbers again. I kind of like it. It isn't wildly thrilling me, but I like it. What do you all think? Does the pattern work with the colors?

Oh, I even got some rows in on the MS3! I'm almost done with Chart E in Clue 4. I might work on it a bit more tonight.

Spent yesterday in LA hanging out with John, Jen, and Sarah, playing with new illusions. I did something to my ankle Friday during sparring, and it's still a little sore, so I don't know if I'll be able to do class(es - kickboxing and tkd are slated) tomorrow. If not, I should be sociable tomorrow night and go to a faculty mixer. I don't really want to, though. I just want to go to knitting in the morning, and preferably class tomorrow night.
