Progress on Socks...

Finished up the first of the SOS'08 Black Iris socks tonight and used this tutorial to finish off the hem from live stitches...here's what it looks like from the inside:
and from the outside:

I'm really pleased that it went as quickly as it did, and that the sewn hem remains as stretchy as can be! LOVE.IT!

And in the mail today?

Yes, that's Abstinence. Interesting name...I surely have no ability to abstain when the purples and grays are this gorgeous, how about you? I think Gust will be stunning in this...hmmm. There may even be enough to make some fingerless mitts!

And...the Knitpicks order is in the dreaded WV Sortation Center (since Saturday). Shall we take bets on how long it sits there?
(((hugs)))

Very pretty! I love picot hems, although for some reason I don't use them that often. I'm going to have to add that back into my repertoire.

Both Abstinence and your Black Iris socks are beautiful. The edging is just so pretty!

Your socks are looking great. I gave up and am making an afghan instead.

Those socks are looking great, and I absolutely love that yarn you got! I can't wait to see it in Gust...

Namaste

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
