I finished the socks I was making on my train ride to and from my parents house. I did not make much progress on the train ride (you can read about that adventure here) but I did finish them fairly quickly once I got home.
Yarn: Snowberry & Lime's Sock Yarn in Faded Lilacs
Needle Size: US 1 (2.25mm) 9" circular needles
The pattern for these socks is simple and well written. I did not memorize it, so I had to keep looking back at the pattern every 2nd row, but it kept me interested.
I like the combination of the yarn and the pattern; they work really well together.
I am now starting to work on Christmas presents, and I am still not panicking. I am really hoping that since most of the projects are small, I won't have a mental breakdown between now and Christmas.
