Finally, some knitting

At last, the purple stripe (aka Penelope) socks are finished. These are toe-up socks with short row toe and heel. I don't know why they gave me so much trouble. They're my fourth pair of socks, though they are the first pair made from sock yarn.

Here's a close up of the short row heel, which fits very well.

The toe turned out to be a bit too loose though. I'll need to adjust that for the next pair.

Now I can work on a long-neglected project -- the elegant gauntlets from Sally Melville's The Purl Stitch. You know you've been working on socks too long when #2 needles feel huge.
