At long last I have finished the socks for my brother. And it only took 8 months or so. I am definitely not a sock knitter. All those tiny little stitches get a bit discouraging after awhile.
Now on to newer and better projects. I ordered the hedgehog pattern the other night so I'll be starting that once it gets here. I also cast on for Knitty's Blackberry today using that red yarn that I've had forever. It's nice to be knitting with big needles, I feel like I've already gotten a fair amount done.
