I made my first ever pair of socks awhile back, they turned out ok, and didn't take too long to make.(pics in the far future as said pair of socks are currently in Pakistan for reasons not currently known) So after that I decided to cast on for the DH's pair...with size 1's and sock yarn that feels more like sewing thread. My DH wears a size 13(in the US) shoe. I think that this might just be what puts me over the edge. I knit and knit and knit and they don't seem to get any longer, so they are currently hibernating. But you get a pic anyway.
Before you ask, yes I did stab my knitting with the needle.
And also here is an Update on what I think I might call "The Confetti Shawl"
