Happy New Year!

Now that everyone has recovered from drunken debauch (or in my case, back-to-back Batman movies), on to the knitting.

I finished the first of the toe-up Regia socks the other night and went to cast on the second. I had forgotten to copy the pattern before leaving home, but I was pretty sure I remembered how to do it. Erm. Well. I got it cast on, no problem, but when it came to the increases, I could not for the life of me remember where they went. I tried two different configurations, getting more and more frustrated all the time. At length, K asked me what the problem was and how we could fix it. "Tomorrow, find a bookstore and look it up," I said. "Is it on Amazon maybe?" he asked. The man is a genius, I say, a genius. Thanks to the magic of the internet, I was able to find the exact page and get my decreases perfect. The second sock has been launched!

Of course, now that it's well-established, I'm ignoring it to work on Travelling Roses. I'm determined to finish it by the time I'm home.

I want to see the socks when you are done. I am terrible when it comes to knitting socks. I think I have completed a total of 3 pair of socks. But I have a lot of half started socks and single socks.

Don't worry, I'll post pictures when I can. I love socks--they're small enough knits that I don't get bored halfway through. An important factor for the ADD knitter.
