to finish my last sock so I can knit with my new yarn. I am anal about not starting more than one project at a time, so I am knitting like crazy to get this sock done, but the book I am reading keeps calling to me! I have to bring my son to the dentist this afternoon, so I am going to bring the sock with me and knit in the waiting room. I only have the foot to go, and I am using addi turbos so I should finish this thing tonight!

Hey me too! The second sock of black boringness is almost done. I just have to shape the toe! Then I can start on the second colorful one.

They're fun aren't they? When I get a new job and can afford to, I'm going to learn the way you are doing it. I heard it's faster once you get the hang of it.

*pat on the back* and well done!

I can't believe how much faster they go with the 2 circulars! I did about 3 inches on the foot just sitting at the dentist. I wasn't there very long either.

Did you finish it? I got mine finished in time to wear them when my DH got home. LOL His favorite term from me is "mental" and I think I was acting it I was so happy.

I posted about them today if you want to go see them:

I forgot to ask you what kind of yarn you used.

The black is Bernats Kroy and is kind of itchy but works up really nice. I enjoyed working with it, even with the boring blackness, that I bought some grass green to do next.

The cool pooling color sockapal2za sock is Regia Color in Partie. Again, a nice sock yarn. Don't take my word for it too much though, they're the only two I've ever knitted with. :-)
