halfapair=onesock

RPM numba 1

The first RPM sock is complete! I'm kinda proud of this lil' guy, he's my first sock where an actual stitch pattern was involved. I also got to try a short-row heel (and then sew up the disgusting row of holes) and a fancy-dancy pointed toe.

I started a pretty awesome hat this week, but i had a nasty migraine all day so I didn't take any WIP pictures. You'll see it soon enough. Hopefully it will be the first item in the long awaited
Knitxcore's etsy shop. maybe.

I feel like a post isn't complete without a cute video, and it keeps you all coming back. So today you get this:

Tender Forever - Magic of Crashing Stars

It's a great looking sock -- and it'll go nicely with your sweater, if you're into the matchy-matchy thing. :-)

Love the colors! I've never seen an RPM that showed the stitch pattern so nicely. Kinda makes me want to cast on myself.

I love your RPM! You should check out the misocrafty short row tutorial to deal with the holes.

Your sock looks great. Short row heels and toes make me curse. Even when they look ok, it's usually still the product of much cursing.
