Thanks to Ernesto, I whipped these socks up in just a couple days. The yarn is Painted Merino in Olives and Pimento from Holly Spring Homespun in Powhatan, Va. This yarn purchase was one of my summer of stash slip ups, but I'm glad it happened.
Next up, Cece from Bonne Marie Burns in Rowan Calmer.
This project started moving along nicely once I gave in and started using a gazillion place markers.
Both projects helped me survive the "my baby is going to kindergarten" freak out of the last week or so. Wow, she's happy, and I'm knitting. Sounds like a good deal.
