Holy Magic Loop, Batman

So I have tried something new this weekend, and I am really liking it thus far. Magic Loop...what's not to like, no ladders, easy to try on, and best of all, no SSS. The only thing that I'm not liking right now is how slow it goes, so I just keep reminding myself that once I'm done, I'm done, no second sock to cast on for.

An "N" for November. I have finished my November socks for SAM4, although I almost feel like I cheated, just plain toe-up St St. Yay for quick and easy socks. I really do love these socks though, the yarn is from heaven( actually it's Plucky Knitter, but close enough) it's so soft and squishy and the colors are awesome.
Pattern: Working Socks from the Toe-Up from Interweave Summer 2007
Yarn: Old Oak Tree Superwash Sport from the Plucky Knitter
Needles: US 2.5


I've also finished my first Chevron Scarf, which I am also very happy with how it turned out.

Pattern: Chervon Scarf by Joelle Hoverson

Yarn: Claudia Hand Painted Fingering in Oops and Stormy Day (1.5 skeins of each)

Needles: US 5


A quick peek at my WIPs...
