Quickest FO

Tonight I finished my quickest FO ever...I think. I started a pair of baby socks on Friday and finished it up earlier this evening. Gotta love these quick knit projects!
To the right you will see a picture of the finished product. They are acutally a little darker than the picture because it was dark outside when I took the photo and didn't have natural light. In other words, I had to use the flash.
OK, here are the stats:
Pattern: Baby to Toddler Sized Socks by Miriam L. Felton (pattern on Ravelry)
Yarn: Chamelion Colorworks Evolution
Colourway: Black Cherry
Needles: Crystal Palace 2.0 mm (US 0) bamboo DPNs
Time taken to knit: 2 days
This pattern is so quick and easy to knit, and I'll definitely be using it again! I also loved working with this yarn. It's so very soft! I'll be using this yarn again in the future as well.
I took a break from the other socks I was working on to knit these baby socks. I do have more of it done though, and am about to start the heel flap on it. I am still on the first sock though, so not a whole lot of progress on that one yet.
Not much else to say. School is finished the 18th of July, then we have a week off before we do a week of Summer Camp. Still don't know if I'll be working the first week or so of school when it starts up in August or not. I guess I'll find out the closer it gets to the time.
Heading off now. Happy knitting, all!
P.S. Ten weeks from today I'll be flying home! Woot!!

Such cute socks, love the bright colors. I've never tried my hand at knitting socks and keep saying I need to. Is this the easiest possible pattern to start with?

popped over from 25 Things or Homespun Helpers........shoot, forgot where I was when I started blog walking.

Thanks for the encouragement regarding knitting socks. I've not tried DP, must buy some and give it a go. Perhaps after I finish a few of WIP.

Please stop in frequently, love visitors and the welcome mats always out.

Hi there,
I work for SMOE in Seoul for a public school! I found your blog while searching Google for yarn stores in Seoul. I never know where to find anything here... I've heard that you can find yarn in Dongdaemun market, but that place is huge. Do you know of any good yarn stores that you could point me to??? I would be so grateful!

Baby socks are always a great filler for the knitting gift basket.
