Very easy project indeed! I was inspired by Brenda's black inky (ravelry link)- what a copy cat eh?

Want more knitting? I am knitting three pairs of socks for my girlfriend who gave me the lovely table and sideboard. Here is the first sock of the first pair, I am using Austerman Step and what a lovely yarn it is:

I am about to start the heel of the 2nd sock soon. Of course, I forgot my knitting at home, so the heel will have to wait until later. I NEVER leave home without my knitting. NEVER people. First time for everything.

Below are the two skeins I am going to use for her other two pair:

Some Lion Brand Sockease:

Thankfully my girlfriend's feet size are very small, so I can whip these out in no time. When I look at the picture of the sock I can't believe these will fit her, but I had her try it on and it does. Wow. Thankfully she doesn't have giant feet. Whew.
