What's on the needles?

So until I find the perfect sweater with the perfect yarn, I've decided to resign myself to some sock knitting.I've come to the realization that knitted socks are the perfect project. They're quick, very portable and most of the time you don't have to think about the pattern and can just knit away. I think from now on I'm always going to have a pair of socks on the needles.

This newest pair of socks is for me. I'm finished with my Christmas knitting (it really is a miracle, the first time finishing everything before Christmas!) I loved the pattern of my Grandma's socks so much that I had to have a pair for myself.

My quest for the perfect sweater is coming along. I found the pattern... now it's just a question of yarn (and the fact that I don't have any money to spend on yarn... sigh...Ah well, one more semester and I'll be finished being a broke college student!) I'll post a picture of the "perfect" sweater soon. For now, I'm off!

Heh...I've been knitting on the Fair Isle Sweater of Doom for three months now, and I can't tell you how much I'd love to have a sock on the needles. :)

I agree about socks being the perfect take-along project. Those are very pretty.

It is great to have socks on the needles - perfect to turn to for a quick few rows, or for that portability. I love the way these look!

The socks are really beautiful. I admired the ones that you made for your grandma, and I love these too!

How do you like knitting socks on circulars?
