In which I continue to claim I am not dead!

So, I have stopped counting the months between postings. It's shameful, I know.

But I have been squeezing in knitting time little by little, and when I did get a minute, it would just fly by. As a result a pair of socks was finished!

Pattern: Ironworks, size small
Yarn: Tanis Fibre Arts Blue Label Fingering Weight in Peacock
Needles: 2.5mm aluminum circulars
Start: September 24, 2008
End: Jan 24, 2009
For: Old Man (neither an old man, nor my old man)
Modifications: None!
Verdict: Love knitting this, it sped by whenever I could have enough time to get into the pattern groove. The yarn is gaaaaaaawgeous, and just fabulous to work with. No word yet on the wear, but given it's a wool/nylon blend, I am not too concerned. As the clincher, the recipient loves them! I just feel bad it took me so long to finish.
