I MUST be insane.

Seriously. I MUST be insane. What was I thinking when I decided to knit DH a pair of black socks with fingering weight sock yarn and size 1 needles? If nothing else, this is a refresher course in why I hate working with really dark colors. It's damn near impossible to see your stitches clearly! Especially, with these damn tiny needles.
However, I am starting to love this pattern. It's the Classy Slip-Up pattern in Betsy McCarthy's Knit Socks! book. I am using Knitpicks (of course) Essential yarn.

And, below, VOILA! Hannah's sweater is finished! Woo-Hoo!! I love how it turned out. The buttons are wood, handpainted DragonFly buttons that I found at JoAnn's, And I don't want to, but I'll admit to using cheap-o acrylic yarn. It's Carron, so at least it's a lot softer than that Red Heart stuff.
