Bougainvillea in a Sock

So, I finished a sock on Sunday. Yes, one. C'mon, you know how slowly I knit- did you really think I'd have a whole pair to show you already? ;) I so *heart* this yarn. Have I mentioned that already? Well, I do. I'll say it again, too, I don't care. It's so soft, and the colors are so pretty! I wish I could accurately capture the beauty that is this yarn for you, but until I have just the right light, these photos will have to do. The colors in it (when you can see it vividly, unlike here) remind me of all the bougainvillea vines that grew around my mom's house.

I'm still kind of *eh* about the two circulars method. It's not heinous or difficult or anything like that - I'm liking it enough - it's just different. It's a whole different experience than knitting on DPNs. It's fine, but like I said before, I'm kinda missing the DPNs. We'll see. Back to the important part- I finished a sock! Yay! I'd better get moving on the second one, what do you think?
By the way, thank you so much for all of your sweet comments about Dakota! He is so sweet and lovable. B and I couldn't be happier dog parents. :)

It looks great! I did my old rose socks in that same yarn and colorway - it's one of my favorites as well. As for methods, I like my DPN's. Socks suck on circular needles!

Stop it! You're making me want to knit socks, and I don't have the right needle sizes. Very cute, though!

that sock's a BEAUTY!! Good job! That was my first pattern too and I hated doing the ribbing all the way down the foot. Now I'm doing just plain knitting all over except for a cuff. Hey ... the trick and the rule is that you MUST cast on for the second sock as soon as you take the first one off the needles. Really. It's the rule. Honest. Okay, so there are not Knitting Police but it's the custom. ;-)
