Not sure how clearly this picture will come out, but I've finished a pair of socks for me, and here I am modelling them. :-)
These are the "Sox on 2 Stix" from Knitty, and you can see what the socks look like better here: http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEfall06/PATTsoxon2stix.html
I loved knitting them on straight needles. The only down side is sewing the seams. My mattress stitch still needs a little work. ;-) And I also learned a standard bind off (knit two, take first stitch off over second) is way too tight for socks! So the second sock I bound off with the sewn bind off. That's stretchier and it works, but I knit tightly and would like something even MORE stretchy, so the next time I'll try another bind off. Heck, it's a science experiment!
So, what have you finished lately?
