Socky goodness.


I did finish Colleen's Sixth Sense socks on Sunday (say that ten times fast!) She hasn't tried them on yet, so I hope they're right. They are definitely fraternal — though they look fairly similar at a distance, I did knit them from separate hanks, they didn't start at exactly the same point, and one pair is every so slightly greener/bluer than the other. But I think that's okay.

In other news...
I went to see one of my favorite bands, Over the Rhine, last night at one of my favorite venues, the Belly Up Tavern. They were fabulous and I got to stand right in front of the stage. They were in great form. The Rhinelanders were friendly as always, so even though I went by myself I had lots of nice people to talk to. Turns out a number of OtR fans are also a-ha fans — I guess us "obscure '80s groups" types have to stand together..

(Seriously, if you haven't heard a-ha since "Take on Me", go out and get Analogue, their newest CD. It is truly fantastic.)

On knitting subjects, I got some more new Inox needles from Two Swans Yarn. Their packages tend to arrive before I remember that I've ordered anything, and always with a friendly personal note. Yay, needles.

Ooo, pretty. The socks look good. (I don't see any not-matchingness in the photo.)

Two Swans really is a fab operation. I've met the owner, and she's kind and knowledgable.

So...what are you going to do with that lace weight in the last blog entry?
