Guess what I'm knitting?

That's right -- socks, and nothing but.

Progress continues on J's Fancy Socks. I'm more than half done with the leg of the first sock, and I'm planning on eliminating about 10 rows on this portion since I'm worried about running short on yarn. The pattern makes a particularly long leg portion anyway, so I don't think it will make a difference in how the sock looks. This mod will result in eight pattern blocks (rather than nine) in the leg, and the called-for seven pattern blocks in the foot.

I've also started another pair for me, and for these I've decided to tackle the Pomatomus (it's taken me all day to learn how to spell that!). I've also caved and joined the Pomatomus Knit Along, which frankly I shouldn't be so worried about because the time frame is really reasonable; I don't think I'll have a lot of trouble finishing these by the fall (although now I've probably jinxed myself). Here's the progress so far, which isn't much, but does show off the beautiful colorway of my Lorna's Laces.


Finally, here's a shot for Yvonne. Sorry I didn't do the formal sign up, but here is my nod to Alton Brown:


(Bad angle -- there's really a lot more in here that you can't see, like milk, tofu, cream cheese, pasta sauce, leftover oatmeal, etc.)

Yay for the Pomatomi knitters! Your yarn looks lovelt, and I'll be looking forward to seeing your progress.
