Nearly a pair



I've finally finished my first sock, and started on the second of the pair! It's so cute! I adjusted the pattern slightly to make it shorter to fit me better. I have to knit socks very slowly, cos I still battle with RSI (or whatever you want to call it - my hands hurt a lot if I do anything too demanding like playing the piano, embroidery, or knitting - all things I LOVE). The ultra-thin needles are really stretching the relationship (not sure if it's a friendship yet) between my hands and knitting. I have some 2mm (and 3.5mm) bamboo DPNs on order from Ozeyarn, though, for subsequent socks, and am hoping their lightness and flexibility will ease the pain :)
