Circus Socks
Artful Yarn's "Circus," pattern on ball band.
Finished September 15, 2005
One skein made one pair. I worked with what I had -- size 10 DPs, instead of the 11s called for, so these turned out small. Turned out perfect for my MIL, who's birthday was coming up and who has tiny feet. Thanks to my SP4, Cece, for the yarn!

Baby hat & booties
Knit Picks Shine Twist
Finished August 28, 2005

With the successful turning of my first heel (yay me!) I turned to an old pattern (meant for Adrafil Jumping yarn) and quickly knit up this set (previously I'd only braved the hat). Unfortunately, because I substituted yarn (Knit Picks' Shine Twist, AMAZINGLY soft & great for baby stuff), my gauge was quite loose and got looser as I worked, so one bootie turned out bigger (!) than the other (artfully hidden here...ya right). So technically, this is my first pair of finished socks (still working on my second adult sock), but they're a little off.
