{yarn along} brighter!

After all of the dark stuff I've been reading this week, I decided that maybe it was time to find something just a little more cheerful. I've got a whole stack of cozy murder mysteries to choose from, but my choice is probably going to be based on what's due at the library first.  The socks are cutting down on my reading time.
 

The new sock is knit up to halfway point of the short row heel and there's not the slightest hint of pooling or flashing. Which leaves me with the mystery of what it'll do once I start the ribbing...
 

I'd lost all hope for the first pair as a challenge entry, but look at the pretty pooling and that one bit of striping action! Another inch and a half of binding and it's time to start the second sock...and then I'm retiring this set of needles. They're too long and too bendy and not slick enough.
 


For more fun knitting projects to drool over, check out On the Needles at Patchwork Times and Work in Progress Wednesdays at Tami's Amis.

I don't knit so you've totally wow'd me that you knit socks. Really...WOW!

Love the socks. I read someplace if you go down a needle size it can help yarn pool....never tried it myself though.

Like your orange yarn; it looks similar to what I showed today, except the yarn was orange and blue for Denver Broncos!

Nothing like some cozy murder mysteries to brighten the day. Add in a large mug of tea and some cheerful sock knitting & you have a pretty perfect one! The socks look great!

You are doing a great job...pooling or not, the color is very nice.
