Thing A Month - A Pair of Pairs

Dear Neuro,

Although I am temporarily obsessed with bootie production, that will be winding down soon and March project progress will continue once again, in earnest.

I've got a pair of two-at-a-time top-downs as well as a pair of toe-ups (using your O is for Oogy yarn!) underway, and would looooove to have them all mostly done by the end of this month:

We'll see how that goes!  Bootie 12 of 12 is in progress, more to come soon!


P.S.  I should just say now that I probably cheated with the toe-ups - I started the Magic Cast-On using DPNs, after several unsuccessful attempts using the circulars (things kept getting turned around backwards somehow!)

Bootie Call - Halfway There

Whatever was going on in the early fall of 2012, one of its results is the impending appearance of several babies to various friends and co-workers.  As of today, there are 6 sets of happily expectant parents (that I know of!!).  Also, as of today, there are also 6 happily completed booties:

I'm halfway there!!

Thing A Month - March - O is for Oogy

Dear Neuro,

I can't believe that I am the lucky recipient of some of your recent dyeing efforts!  And - just in time for our March Thing A Month project - 2 socks on 2 circs!  O is definitely for Oogy (or, '88, if you turn your head sideways, which is evidently what I was doing last night!).  I'll be casting on for the accompanying Knit Picks toe-ups, but using Judy's Magic Cast-On, which is awesome.

Thanks again for the 5-HT!  Happy sock knitting!
