I am baaaaack!
It's been a long couple of weeks, work-wise, but I have made it through preparation for business travel, a trip that involved being fed information via the garden hose method while sick and trying to get a prescription for antibiotics to Ohio (not easy when your doctor is in MA!). But now, I'm home, caught up on work, and I have time to knit.

I still haven't taken pictures of the sweater that's been finished for months, it's been unseasonably warm and I haven't wanted to put it on. I have some finished socks, however.

This is the closest to what the color looks like in person. Except it's even brighter. In your face green!

This is what they look like on the foot.

And they've got a fancy heel too.

Pattern: Blathnat
Yarn: Koigu sock yarn
Needles: US #0
Comments: The color of the yarn is gorgeous, but there were quite a few inconsistencies in the spinning. Some spots looked really frayed, some looked underspun, and some were waaaay too thick. It worked out fine, but there were issues.

Oh, the cats say I need to post cat pictures. Well, here you go, cat picture.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Beautiful socks! I can't bring myself to knit with size 0 needles; I'm glad *you* did.

Cats are great!

Your Blathnat look great! I've seen them on Rav recently and they look so complicated. Are these as complicated as I think? Yours look fabulous!
