So instead of a picture of finished socks, here are a couple of things that are currently inspiring me:
--these mice from Lucinda Guy's Handknits for Kids
--these cables from Viking Patterns for Knitting
--and these korknisse ornaments from Elliphantom Knits, a gorgeous knitting blog that is definitely worth checking out. I would have put a picture of her unbelievably cute ornaments here, but I couldn't find an email address to use to ask her permission first, so I thought I'd err on the side of caution. But you should definitely go see!
Hope everyone has a good weekend! I promise to post pictures of my first pair of knitted socks as soon as the weather allows.
