I couldn't resist -- I finish one pair of socks and just have to cast on another! Simple stockinette ones this time, but I'm going to change it up a bit and try Cat Bordhi's Sweet Tomato Heel. My mom has been knitting socks using this heel and seems to love it as much as everyone else who has tried it, so it's time for me to give it a go!
I cast on in the new Miss Bab's yarn that I got in the mail in the colorway Zombie Games. I love how moody this colorway is while still featuring bright pops of green, teal, and burgundy. I think I'll love this pair. I'll be looking for a way to double-strand or reinforce the heel -- any ideas?
I forsee knitting a lot this weekend while watching Falling Skies, and hopefully during The Walking Dead, too. Do any of you watch The Walking Dead? I read the comics after the first season -- I'm very addicted, which surprises me, considering how zombies are my biggest fear ever. Irrational, I know.
