This week I speed-knit a pair of socks for my brother's 26th birthday.
When he blew those out I swear our smoke alarm should have gone off. ^_^
He put them on immediately and claimed, "This is how socks SHOULD feel," and complimented the fit, the color, and my skill. Knit-worthy? Yes. Why else would I have knitted him a sweater for Christmas?
After I finished the socks, I honestly thought I wouldn't knit again for another week or so. (I knit them in 2 days, after all.) But actually I cast on another project immediately, with size 10 needles and chunky yarn. By the next morning I had some wonderful slippers.
This pattern was actually sort of strange to me because at the end you thread your ribbons through live stitches at the heel and at the top of the foot. But once you tie up the big bow it ends up keeping the slipper on quite well. These will probably be a birthday gift for my niece- her birthday is next month, on Friday the 13th. WooOoOoo 0_o
