My Gryffindor socks are in the FO pile!! New WIP!!

I finished my Gryffindor socks!! Yeah!! These are the first pair of socks that I've knit for my own actual use!! They are comfortable and oh so pretty!! Thank you again Mary Catharine for sending me the yarn and pattern in my HSKS #3 package!! I LOVE the yarn!!

Cast on: October 2007
Finished: January 6th, 2008
Pattern: Fawkes by Monkey Toes (pattern from ravelry but the link to the pdf isn't working right now)
Yarn: Gryffindor by Razzy Tazzy Knits. (She doesn't have anything up but when she does I'd love some more yarn)
Comments: LOVE LOVE LOVE the yarn and pattern. Took me a while to knit because this has been my travel knitting for a long time. :)

I also Cast on for my first pair of Monkey socks by Cookie A. Last I checked on ravelry there were over 3000 of these socks in the users projects. I think most people who have knit socks have knit this pattern. I'm knitting them because 1. I like how the pattern looks and 2. the Sock knitters Anonymous Sockdown is using Cookie A as one of this month's designers.

Start date: January 5, 2008
Pattern used: Monkey No-purl pattern
Yarn: Dream in Color Smooshy
Needles: US 2 Knit Picks circs

Well...this post sure solidifies why this blog is a knitting blog. :) I hope everyone had a great weekend. My toe is still sore but it's not bright red and swollen as it was on Friday. I'm hoping to be able to make it on my feet all day tomorrow. I don't seem able to put a shoe on so that might be a problem.

Happy Knitting!!!
