OMG - An FO!

Yes, believe what you are seeing! I actually have an FO! Don't ask me why it took me five months to get these socks completed, 'cause I really don't know. What is really important is that they are D-O-N-E!

Pattern: Embossed Leaves Socks (Favorite Socks)

Yarn: Koigu KPPPM (Colorway P105)
Needles: Knit Picks Fixed Circs Size 2 (cuff) and Size 1.5 (foot)
Started: October 20, 2008
Finished: March 22, 2009
Mods: I did a straight Knit, Purl Ribbing on Cuff instead of Twisted Rib Stitch

Isn't it amazing just how different these socks are? The pooling definitely did it's own thing from sock to sock. Fraternal twins for sure.

What Ya Think?

Back in January I went and got my eyes checked. Since I had insurance I decided to get new glasses. Can I tell you just how thankful I am that I did this when I did? So while I still don't have any knitting to show off, I thought I would show off my new glasses.

Without glasses...

With glasses...
At Christmas I fell in love with Mary Beth's new specs. Normally I go with frames that blend into my face, but I felt like the bold frames looked good (the fram is made by Legre. Believe it or not, I actually love wearing these glasses! What ya think?

5 AM

This is one day I was happy I didn't have to go out in this....

This is what I saw when I looked out my front door at 5am. I guess old man winter just had to get a real snowstorm to us in NYC before spring started in a couple of weeks.
