As predicted, the socks, they are finished.

I bound off on the train home last night.  After dinner I wove in the ends and proclaimed them finished.  Most definitely fraternal twins, of which I am definitely partial 😉  It was definitely nice knitting with my handspun again and I must remember to do it more often.  Having to go sifting through the stash to see where I hid it all.  Project details are here.

So.  After finishing those, I needed a purse project for today’s commute (and to continue along the 12 in 15 plan).  A quick dip into the yarn basket next to my nightly knitting chair revealed this pretty:

The yarn is from itw, colorway is 221B in a SW Merino/Cashmere/Nylon.  This had to be a festival purchase.  Your guess is as good as mine as to which festival, though if forced to guess, I’d say MDSW 2014.  I wound it up last night while helping Kathryn with her homework and explaining Operator Precedence.  I don’t remember learning that in 5th grade.  She was having problems getting the order right based on the mnemonic that she learned in school that had multiplication taking precedence over division and addition over subtraction.  Fortunately, I was able to guide her to safety, and had a wound cake of yarn ready for this morning’s commute.  I cast on after getting on the train and took this picture as the ferry was approaching the pier.  These socks will be 56 stitches on a US0.
