FO: Running River socks

Finally, I finished my socks! And I couldn't be happier with them.

This pattern looks much more difficult than it really is - it was really simple. The river section is a simple rib, moved left and right by simple increases and decreases. And the toe, oh how I love the toe! It's an anatomical toe, which makes it easy to figure out which sock is which. I'm not sure why all socks don't use this toe - it's awesome. This yarn was great for the project - and if you don't have any of Maya's awesome sock yarn, I recommend buying some right now. Such great colors, and lovely, squishy yarn. I've got about 180 m of yarn left over, maybe enough for a pair of fingerless gloves for the fall?

Pattern: Kalajoki
Yarn: Springtree Road Muscadine Sock in Framboise

And over Spring Break, I started working on Veera's Stripe Study shawl (rav link), and am loving how it's turning out! I knitted on it all week and got through 10 out of 12 stripes. I've set it aside for a little while to work on a few other things, but I'll pick it up again soon! It's a great "on the go" project, for sure.

update: i've changed the commenting system around on the blog, which has, unfortunately, deleted all of the old comments. they're still saved on blogger, but don't show up with the new system. this new system will allow me to respond to everyone directly, but only if you leave your email address! and i've said it before, but can't say it enough - thanks to everyone who leaves comments, they all make my day! and now i can respond to you!
