(Terrible picture of me, but you can see my knitting poster in the background)
Pattern: No pattern. Just a mindless seed stitch scarf, perfect for knitting on after working twelve hour days twelve days in a row (but who's counting?).
Yarn: Approximately one and one half skeins of Malabrigo in colorway Azul Profundo. I normally don't seem to have any blue yarn (which is one of the reasons, besides pure laziness, that I haven't joined Knit Blue), but I was enamored with this colorway. After Rick saw this knitted up, I think I know why. He said it reminded him of our Oklahoma sky right before a storm, and y'all know how I feel about Oklahoma weather. Bring it on!
Comments: Oops. I think I've been commenting in the previous sections, but oh well! This yarn is fantasticly soft with beautiful colors, and I can't wait to knit with it again. Here's one more picture.

Before we get to the pictures, I must explain why I said that I only sorta-kinda finished my first pair of socks. After learning how to turn a heel at my second sock class, I decided I didn't need the third class to finish up the socks. Which was probably not the wisest choice, because I read my pattern incorrectly and managed to knit my decrease rows on the top of the sock. So when I wear the socks with the heels in the right place, I have painful bumps on the top and bottom of my toes (left sock): And when I wear my socks with the toes in the right place: The heel ends up on the side, making Sock #1 look like some kind of specialized goiter cozy.At least I learned my mistake before finishing Sock #2, which came out reasonably well.
