obligatory pic heavy first post

my html is as rusty as...something rusty. but here we go.

Magic Strip Socks

Yarn: Lion Brand Magic Stripes (superwash wool) in...something purpley. less than 1 skein.
Needles: size 3 DPNS
Pattern: came off the ball band. no modifications.
Comments: the first one (the one on top in the pic) came out a little slouchy, but this was my first time on DPNS. second one fits like a charm. if you look real close you'll see the stripes are backwards, because for the first one i took the yarn from the center of the ball but for the second one i took it from the outside, because sometimes i'm a little simple. anyway i like these socks, they are comfy and washable, and people will probably be getting some for christmas this year.

Tasha

Yarn: TLC (all it says is TLC. 100% acrylic) in Linen. less than 1 skein.
Needles: 6 straights
Pattern: Tasha from Knitty. no mods.
Comments: as previously notes, i'm simple, so the strap is horribly, horribly long. that's what i get for short-attention-span knitting. also there are eight-count-em-eight seams in this tiny thing. but it's the perfect size to carry around socks-in progress. and the cables, up close, are pretty cool. the yarn has a nifty sheen too it, too.
