and all around the wall a splotch a blob beware of the blob

Lookit what I actually finished last weekend!
Yes! One Snakeskin Sock, done! I think it's pretty kickass, myself. I put just the right amount of negative ease in it. I started on the second, but I started the pattern too soon - the cuff wasn't long enough - and didn't figure it out until three inches into it so I frogged it.

And then yesterday I seamed the cozy splotchy cardigan, and reinforced the buttonholes, and even sewed on buttons, and did the neck, and the Must Have Cardigan from Hip to Knit in Manos del Uruguay is done.
Knitting time: 8 days. Blocking: 2 days. Seaming: 1 day. I made the 42" size, because I didn't quite get gauge and I didn't want to go down a size smaller. The fit is perfect. The pattern called for 7 skeins of Manos, I used about 5.3.

I'm ridiculously in love with it.
