finished socks and eye candy

I finished the Jelly Beans socks!

What a nifty pattern. I think the only thing I would change is the garter stitch at the top of the cuff. It feels kind of loose compared to the rest of the sock, which has a lovely, snug, textured fit.

I really need to learn how to use the nice camera. It's a DSLR we got when I was pregnant with Daniel six years ago, and I still don't know how to take good pictures with it. The socks look more brown in these pictures than in real life.

I've decided not to keep these, much as I like them. I'm not saying where they're going, just to a worthy recipient.

Pattern: Jelly Beans Socks by Green Mountain Spinnery
Needles: size 1 (2.25mm) DPNs. I used KP Harmony needles. They're nice, but this is the first pair of socks I've made with this particular set of needles, and one already has a nick at the end. Good thing they send you six of each size in case one breaks.
Yarn: Dream in Color Smooshy, in a gray color I think is called "Tabby". I had lots of this left over from making my dad birthday socks a couple of years ago. There was plenty for these socks, and enough, I think, to make a pair of socks for these little feet:

And just for fun, here's my little girl eating yogurt on the deck:

It seems as though today spring has finally, finally arrived.
