Late for the Party

The reason that I am late to start a blog is the same reason that I am often late to parties: what on earth do I have to contribute or say that isn't already being said by people far more fabulous than myself? I still don't know the answer to this question, but I've decided that I'm not out to change the world, just to show off my knitting.

Obsessed? Hopelessly.

Without further ado, my first FO, the Dissertation Socks:

Pattern: Scala, by Stephanie van Der Linden (inspired after seeing this)

Yarns: Sundara Sock Yarn in Grape Hyacinth (from my first Petals Collection shipment)
Black Bunny Sock Yarn in Squash (it dissappears about 5 minutes after she lists them on Etsy)

Needles: size 0 for the cuffs, 1 for the rest

For: My super-smart husband, who is about to be an official PhD.

I totally used my husband's dissertation defense as an excuse to knit socks. Is that selfish or what?
