I finished the first item for my latest WWFY swap, a pair of socks:

Pattern: Monkey
Yarn: Sanguine Gryffon, Bugga! One skein in Metallic Fly
Needles: US 1, two at a time magic loop
Mods: Regular rib instead of twisted rib cause I hate knitting twisted rib

These would have been done a lot more quickly if I hadn’t had to knit so many damn shark mittens. Not that I mind the profit, I just also like knitting socks. I have a bunch more things to knit for this person and also a bunch more shark mittens. So yeah.

But about the socks. I like ’em. They’re too big for me, but they’re not for me and the recipient has larger feet than me, so that’s good. The yarn is wonderful. Soft and squooshy, as a yarn with cashmere in it is bound to be. And I got lots of it in return for all the knitting I’m doing. : ) I really like this particular swap, but I think I’m going to take a break from swapping after I finish everything. There are things I’d like to knit for me.

But socks. I like those.
