Been a while...

Hello, Blog!  It's been a while.  Like, almost a year.  We bought a house last year!  I can't believe we'e been homeowners for a year!  In the move, though, our laptop screen got cracked and the left couple inches of the screen are black and line-y.  That and now-three-year-old loves to use the computer. Since the move, I just haven't spent much time on the laptop to write blog posts, but I'm here to resurrect the blog!

Here's my most recently finished project:

The pattern is Josh Ryks "Mystik Sprial Socks" which incorporate short rows to give some fun shaping:
My yarn is more subtle than the self-striping yarns other people generally choose for this pattern and I think I'm going to knit this pattern again eventually using a more obviously self-striping yarn, but I still think these are fun.  (I used 330 yards of Schachenmayr Regia Digipix Color: PC Color which I received as a gift from a Ravelry swap.)
These are my first socks of the year as part…
