Let me tell you, colorwork goes fast when you learn how to knit Continental. I'm still working out the details on keeping tension properly but I think I'm converted now. I am glad, too, since I have some books that have colorwork patterns in them and now I can give them a shot! :D
And I am still in the running in Sock Madness. I admit that I took my sweet time on this, not finishing the toe until I was comfy in front of the tv tonight (well, okay, maybe it came with me to Mimi's Cafe, too, but the cute, flirting waiter was far too distracting to work on it with any sort of dedication).
New socks, yay!
