1 Out of 2 Ain't Bad

I finished one of the socks yesterday and cast on or the second. This is how it looks:

I'm a big fan of the long leg. My feet are really big so my socks generally look kinda wonky when the foot is about a third longer than the leg. These are pretty fantastic though. We'll see if I have enough yarn to knit the second sock. If not, I'll just sub mint green for the rest of the foot.

In other news, I got my school I.D. today and look more than adequately dorky in the photo. I've also been touring my new fair city and scouting out the specialty stores that will both horrify my mother as well as supply me with art materials for the next two years. Oh, big city living is the life for me.

Ah, Chicago. I sort of miss it.
If you're looking for a cool knit shop - check out knit1 on Lincoln near Irving Park. That's where I learned to knit. Tell Karen I sent ya.

Great socks! I love your mistake rib scarf too, it's a fun knit, isn't it? Your new neighborhood looks nifty. I grew up in NYC, but it's been so long since I actually lived there, sometimes I forget that I miss it.
