Holy Cow Batman!!! I Finished Something!

I have a pair of finished socks to show. I started these sometime in April, finished them July 20th. Berroco Sox yarn, 68 stitches, knit plain on US1 dpn's. It's funny how closely they match my couch! (And they are "almost" identical too!)

I started a new pair for a young lady in my family who will have a birthday next month but haven't taken a picture of it yet (I'm almost to the toe decreases of the first one, so I should have the pair done in time...deadline is the 13th).

I also joined a new Ravelry group...UFOlympics. I will be working on my son's sweater (this will help me accomplish my goal of finishing it this year...maybe in time to gift it for Christmas!). I am almost to the armhole decreases on the back (or front...there are the same except for the neckline). This is the Garter Stitch Aran Pullover from the "Men In Knits" book. Knitting starts 08/08/08 (I will probably be knitting past the closing ceremony on 8/24/08 though).
Well, that's it for now.. Have a great week!

Hee. I'm doing "Laceweight Javelin" in the hopes that I'll actually finish a shawl this year!

Love your socks. Hooray for a finish! I admire the Olympic attempt. I'll cheer for you on the podium!

Aran sweaters are so pretty, but they do take a while. I'd probably still be knitting long past the closing ceremonies. Good luck!

Those socks look great.

I am still not sure enough of my knitting skills to try an Aran sweater
