Hey! I forgot to share some knittin'.
(good thing, 'cuz I am wiped out, and this might help fend off TheBabbles)

Miss Marple Socks

These are socks that I was working on as part of a Mystery KnitAlong with the Sock Knitters Anonymous group on Ravelry. I had until midnight EST on December 31st to finish them and also post a photo. The picture ablove will show you that I finished then while out to dinner (with my loving and most understanding family) on New Year's Eve. Right. There. At. The. Table. I got the photo uploaded 15 minutes before deadline. Talk about cutting it close.

Here's the details:
* My Ravelry Project Page
* Pattern: Miss Marple, by Star Athena
* Yarn: Dream In Color Smooshy, November Muse (the brown)
Knit It Up! Shiny Toes, Plainly Sensible/Charlotte Lucas (the blue)
* Needles: US 1, 2.25mm
* Notes: This was my first time using slip stitch colorwork on a garment (I've only ever done it on a dishcloth). It was a totally fun and addictive knit, and I really think they turned out quite spectacular :-)
