knee socks!

I was going to do an awesome post about the fact that I have finally gotten around to starting the knee socks I've been wanting forever, but blogger won't upload my pictures. This post will therefore be distinctly less than awesome.

The socks are still pretty great. I'm doing them in a nice blue/teal heather Cascade 220 Superwash, in the hopes that I will then be able to wear them in my brown boots without any nasty felting happening.

I'm probably about halfway done with the leg. There's an awesome big cable at the top, and it narrows to a smaller, much less fancy cable that's going to go the whole way down the leg. There may be more fanciness at the ankle, but the jury is still out on that one. I'll decide when I get there. All I know is that these are going to be awesomely warm, and I might have to go out and buy a pair of some kind of shoe that's a size bigger than I usually wear, just so I can show them off properly. I'm pretty sure they'll fit in my boots. If they don't, oh well, I'll just have to wear them around the house. Or borrow my mom's shoes. I think she's a size bigger.

Pictures to come! (So annoying.)
