Oh my god oh my god oh my god!

First- I finished my second sock!

The only problem is I couldn't find the first sock while I was knitting the second one. And I changed the length of the cuff to make them sport socks. And I didn't write down how long I actually made the cuff on the first sock. Sooooooo...

If you count stripes, were a bit shorter on the right (which is the second one).

Then, when I got home today- THERE WAS A PACKAGE FROM KNIT PICKS! Just a little history- I never buy yarn for more than one project at a time. I usually can't afford it. But Knit Picks is so bloody cheap! If I think about it too much, I start to worry, so I'm not going to think about it, because I just barely made the $40 free shipping mark with ALL THIS-

The needles are US1 for socks- my addis are US2. The variegated yarn is Memories in Pansy- it's for socks for a Christmas gift (You aren't reading this, are you, Mom?). The green is Swish in Jade for a sweater for my still-in-the-oven nephew. The glorious Burgundy Gloss is for knee scoks for ME ME ME! And the red stuff is for a felting experiment that I'll get around to someday. I've never had such a haul before! It was so awesome!

Your socks look great. So what if one's a little shorter than the other. And what a great yarn haul. Have fun with it.
