You may think this blog is a cover...

But I actually do knit! See? I finished my Ironstone socks today!

I used the Linear Lace pattern, Ironstone sock yarn, and size 2 (for the leg) and 1 (for the foot) dpns.

This is the first pair of socks I have ever completed from the top down, and I am pleased with the way they turned out. I think I will be trying another pair of top down socks in the future. I also am going to buy some more Ironstone sock yarn - I really enjoyed working with it.

I am still making (slow) progress on the two toe up socks, and moving along quickly on the Chinchilla scarf. About the scarf: I'm using size 8 bamboo straight needles and the feel HUGE. I haven't worked on anything but socks on 0,1, or 2's for so long!
