Just a quick update!

What a banner week for me (in knitting experiences). Not only can I now cable but I am ALMOST a sock knitter!!

I give you 3/4 of fuzzy foot #1!

Knit in cascade 220 bluebell (possibly my favorite of all the cascade 220 colors) on size 10.5 needles.

So the whole "heel turning" thing, not nearly as hard as I had imagined! This pattern is really straight forward & they knit up so quickly!!

How about a progress shot on my "hurry up spring" armwarmers while we're at it!

I'm half way through the second one & I think I will be able to get both armwarmers out of one skein of Noro! That leaves one lovely skein leftover!! Ah the possibilities!!

Now off for a night of bad 50's B-list horror movies & scrabble!

Oohh...dig that colorway on the armwarmers.

And yeah! Socks! Looks great so far!
 
welcome to the fold!

and now we have the same armwarmers!
 
oh cool- the armwarmers look great!
 
i'm the only non-sock knitter left. : (
those armwarmers should hasten spring for certain.
 
Yahaira, your armwarmers were my inspiration!! When I was thinking of cable projects the picture of yours kept popping into my mind!

I adore the colorway on that Noro & now I am lucky enough to have a skein left over! YAY!

Oh Carrie, don't be sad!! I was really worried about sock knitting (Yahaira can vouch for that) but it is a lot easier than I expected! If I can do it, you can!!
