Knitterly Weekend

I should have been working on my final project/essays for my summer class this weekend.

I'll do that next, I promise! In the meantime, this is what I was doing...

I know the picture isn't that great- I'm back to using my camera. Ranger Man's is nicer and it takes better pictures, but um, I know how to use mine. And I'm not too afraid of breaking mine or accidentally deleting a bunch of really pretty pictures.

I did finish the second baudelaire sock- they're so pretty! and the pattern isn't too hard- I had it memorized by the end of the first sock- and it's got enough going on so as to not be too boring.

And I got a present in the mail. Well, not really a present. I picked out some yarn and used Ranger Man's credit card to order it. It's for his uncle who sent us two boxes of things for our kitchen so I'm making him a pair of socks with this:


Hazel Knits Artisan Sock Yarn in the Weekend Warrior Colorway from The Loopy Ewe. It is so lovely- and it's going to be sssooo great to knit with. That's why I finished the second Baudelaire in like... two days. Because I wanted my sock needs for this yarn!

I am so intimidated by the thought of knitting a sock... I tried a scarf over the winter for my first knitting project, and that went OK. But a sock? What pattern and yarn would you recommend for a first-time sock knitter?
