And they’re done!  yay!  I’m so excited.  Here they are pictured but have not yet been blocked.  I can’t help but wear them first.  Anyone else like that?  Just as a reminder, these were knitted with #1’s and I decreased every round.  I’ve since tweaked my personal sock preference and will continue to tweak until I find the perfect fit.

Now that the magenta socks are done, I’m working primarily on the purple socks.  Sock #1 – I’m working on the foot.  Sock #2 – I’m working on the heel flap.  I’m using #2 needles, a shorter heel flap and I’m decreasing every other round instead of every round.  So far, I like how these are looking better than the magenta socks.  I hope they fit better as well.  The magenta socks were a bit on the tight end but I believe that once I block them and use them a bit, they’ll loosen up.

These are for the girl and we are both loving the yarn!  They remind me of birthday cake ice cream from Baskin Robbins.  These are my purse knitting since it’s in the simple stages at the moment.  I’ve been carrying them in my purse and they are officially my “purse knitting”.  I love how far I’ve gotten on them.  The bulk of the work was done in the past week.

That’s about 15″ high now and I need to knit it until it is about 27″.  I’ve got a long way to go especially since I’m doing about 5″ every 2 weeks.  This is a long term project but as long as I keep working on it each week I’m happy.
