New Year's Tradition

I'm starting a new tradition. I'm going to begin a pair of socks for myself on the first day of the year. That's easy. The second part is that I must finish the pair before the year is over. Now let's see if I can pull that off! Here's 2007's entry, the first annual Sandra's New Year's socks:

Yes, yes, I KNOW they're a shameless knock-off of Stephanie's socks (see her Dec 2, 2006 entry). Hers were just so appealing that I had to make a pair for myself. I graphed my own design, though. It's similar to hers, but I didn't actually copy it. The black yarn is Knit Picks Essential, and the pastel is Fleece Artist Merino in the Easter Egg colorway.

I'm kinda liking this black with variegated thing. I think I may try this again! But first I'll finish these.

Here are all of my girls, sleeping it off. They must have had a secret kitty new year's party after we went to bed last night.

See y'all when I return from the family visit to Oklahoma.

Hot damn have I got to find some Fleece Artist sock yarn. I looked while I was in PEI but they had squat besides thrummed sock kits. (My MIL got me one of those, which will make a great pair of slippers, but it's not exactly the same.)

Those socks are going to be really nice when you are done.
Cute picture of your cats!
Enjoy your trip to Oklahoma.
