Keeping Me in Stitches

another one for the finish-a-long

Early Saturday morning, I finished my January RSC socks. Yarn is STR lightweight in Dragon Dance. Pattern is Serendipity by Adrienne Fong. I knit the medium size and went up to size 2's. I'm kind of wishing that I would have done them on 1.5's since they're a little loose, but that could be the construction too. I followed the pattern and used the short-row heel and star toe....neither of which are my favorites, but the point of the sock club is to expand your horizons, right?

Here they are.

And the weekend of my birthday, my parents and their dogs came down to visit. That Saturday afternoon, all three puppies decided that the only place they wanted to be was in my big chair with me while I knit. Once they settled in, I couldn't really move. Want proof?

I don't know what I'm going to knit on tonight. I may spin some more since I got a lot done at SnB last night.
