Pink lady knits

Another FO

Pattern: Log Cabin Socks from "Handknit Holidays" by Melanie Falick
Yarn: Patons Classic Merino in "Chocolate"
Needles: #6 DPN's by Addi
Pattern Notes: The second pair of these socks took a little longer than the first because I got started on other things. However, these were fun and quick to knit. I picked up the second sock yesterday (which I had only completed the ribbing pattern on until then) and finished it up while we watched football and TV shows all day. It matches its mate perfectly, and looks fabulous! Can't wait for him to try them on on Christmas morning! Another Christmas Knit complete!

Also, I went to my Saturday stitch and bitch at the shop and did a little knitting for ME, which I know was wrong, but I did it anyway. I finished two more lace repeats on the Irish Diamond Shawl, and I will share photos next time. I also scored this wonderful ball of Austermann Step with Jojoba and Aloe in the wool! I love the colors, and can't wait to make these into a pair of socks! The updated Knitting List follows:
