Milestone!

I finished knitting the main body of the baby blanket! Yay! Now all that's left is to make the edging and attach it. Not really looking forward to that part, but at least this means no more awful K4tog row 7!

The World's Biggest Socks!

Behold my giant freak show socks:

(hand included for scale... and to show off my pretty manicure)

So, I keep thinking these socks are going to be way too big, but then I try them on Eric and they aren't too bad. So, I am carrying on with knitting the freakishly large socks. I've never knit men's socks before - maybe they are supposed to look this way?? I'm hoping in the end I won't regret my decision to keep going at this size. But I have gauge! And they do fit! It's definitely a looser fit, but I honestly think Eric will like them better that way.

Wish me luck.
