Bye-bye, Birdie!

Poor Owl Socks! Adorable! So quickly knit!

So small! :) Frogged!

On the bright side, though, I've learned to knit with color A in one hand, and color B in the other, so that's good. And I'm starting these over because they are so stinking cute. Instead of size 2 needles, though, going to use my Kollage size 3 needles to give them more room. Although, I have this foreboding sense that the last time I did a type of colorwork, I had cast on 80 stitches and they fit perfectly. Owl Socks is only 64 stitches. And the Panda Silk (the same stuff I used for Kevin's Skyp Socks) is very thin. These could be the strangest Owl Socks ever.

We shall see!


  1. Your needles went to college?

  2. I would like to say that this blog really convinced me to do it! Thanks, very good post.
