2013 first finish

   Well, technically only one of these socks was knit in 2013, but this pair is my first official finish of 2013!  These are my most basic vanilla socks.  Toe-up, cast on 28 stitches using turkish cast on, increase every other round to 60 stitches, Fleegle heel, 2x2 ribbed cuff, finish with Jenny's surprisingly stretchy bind off.  I've been hoarding two skeins of Knit Picks Imagination for too long.  The yarn would look amazing as a pretty lace patterned sock, but I was feeling a bit uninspired when I originally cast on, so vanilla it is.

Pattern: Vanilla Sock
Yarn: Knit Picks Imagination
Colorway: Looking Glass

   I wear a pair of hand knit socks almost everyday in the winter with my boots, so these will come in handy especially when it turns cold again over the weekend.

   Vanilla socks were an easy enough WIP to pick up to finish, but I've also been making some progress on my Hue Shift afghan.  It seems that I'm in the mood for mindless knitting lately.  Sometimes I need something complicated on the needles to keep me interested so I can sit down long enough to knit a few stitches and sometimes I'm more inclined to sit and knit for hours without realizing I'm doing anything with my hands at all.  I think I'll be taking advantage of the later type moments to get some easy (boring?) knitting done while I can.
