It's really quick and good for tv knitting. The pattern just repeats itself over and over and over until you want to quit.
Here's my progress on the SAFF socks (Knotty or Knice socks):
I am almost to the heel on the second sock. This picture is really flashy and the colors are much darker in real life. The cables are gorgeous! I really love this pattern and it's so quick. I'm going sans cable needle, as usual. Much less fiddley. I have the first sock on waste yarn for fear of running out of yarn, but it looks like I'll have enough to make the legs longer, which I really prefer on handknit socks. The pattern doesn't call for a traditional cuff (the pattern is ribbed anyway), but I'll be adding a cuff, maintain the twisted/regular rib pattern up for at least 10-15 rows. Without the cuff, it looks like the sock was either cut off or the knitter just lost interest and ended it where it was. I think it will look more finished with a cuff.
OH, did I mention that Shawn and I picked our wedding date?!? It's November 13, 2009. It's Friday the 13th, but that's Ok. We planned it for that date because it's the Friday before Thanksgiving... Shawn will still be in school then and doesn't want to miss too much class for the honeymoon. This way he'll only miss 2 days since he has off for Thanksgiving break anyway. We'll just do our first Thanksgiving as a married couple alone, on our honeymoon. We are starting to plan a little, but don't know yet where we want to have the wedding/reception (other than we know we want them at the same place). Until we decide that we really can't get too much of the real planning done, but are thinking about cakes, my dress (Moma is making it), food, music, etc. The colors are white (of course), dark red (like garnet), and gold. I want an outdoor ceremony, but that's not 100% yet. Just depends on where we want to have it (hopefully around Dahlonega somewhere...). I have the yarn for my wedding Clapotis (wrap-sized) already and will be casting on for that probably around Christmas. I plan on adding pearls and gold beads to the dropped stitch spaces.
