Wee it's soo tiny!

I finished my Wee Tiny Sock just in time for tomorrow's mailing. Originally I was going to do it in the Claudia that I've been using for the Jaywalkers but I wanted something different -- I love the Claudia but I feel like I've been knitting with it forever. And since I just bought three skeins of Panda Cotton, I thought I'd see how it knits up before I start my next pair of socks.
This particular color is Fall Herbs.
I also picked up some Lorna's Laces. I've never used it before and I can't wait to give it a go.
Another look at the itty bitty sock.

It's soo Wee Tiny!

This weekend Tony and I are going to OKC. We're going for a friend's b-day but really that's just a good excuse to check out the yarn shops in a bigger city.

OH! and as for Idol: snore. It's a battle between Melinda and Lakeisha. I'll keep watching it but I just cant be bothered to score all the losers. We'll just say everyone gets 3-/2+ except Melinda and Lakeisha and they both get 10's across the board.

That little sock is soooo cute! The Panda Cotton is beautiful.

I'm with you on Melinda and Lakeisha.'s that Panda Cotton working out? I have some Sockotta that's cotton,wool,nylon and although I love the colours I really am not liking the way it feels knit up. So, where did you find that?

Love the bitty socks.

Thanks, Marianne. I got the Panda Cotton from Loops. I like the silky shiny feel of the material but as I've experienced with all cottons (and cotton blends) it can be a bit splitty especially if you have to frog any part of it -- for some reason, it just doesn't hold it's twist. I had some trouble getting through the first row and had to re-CastOn three times. Each time I had to cut away the old cast on because the yarn was just too splitty. But overall, I think they'll make some nice summer socks.

I am the lucky recipient of that wee tiny sock, and I plan to frame it and have it in my office. Thanks again
