Completed socks, and a pay it forward meme (aka FREE STUFF!)

I have finished the Jojoland Melody socks, and my fears about their not matching and my consolation that they would probably at least "go" have both been realized.


Look how very nicely they go together!


Aaaaaaand look how they don't actually really match so much!

It's all good, though.

Unfortunately my "on-deck" socks are not working out. I'm trying to knit Catherine, but it's coming out much too big, even down on 000s, and the pattern repeat is so long that I'm not seeing an easy way to modify the pattern to be smaller. I may try these again some day with another yarn (I'm using Cherry Tree Hill Supersock), because it's a pretty and simple pattern. But it is not the sock for me right now -- I've knitted the first couple of inches twice and there's just no way.

Now, I believe I may have mentioned FREE STUFF in the title.

Here is how the handmade Pay It Forward works (modified from other blogs):

I will send a handmade gift to 3 people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange.* I don’t know what that gift will be yet and you may not receive it tomorrow or next week, but you will receive it within 365 days, that is my promise! The only thing you have to do in return is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog.

I came across this idea on Mary Jane's blog. It's fun!

*First three people who comment on the blog, OR three people chosen at random from people who comment before I go to bed on Tuesday night, in case this is vastly more popular than I expect.

Nice socks!

And please count me in for the pay-it-forward thingy.

Also-- socks on 000s?!? As far as I'm concerned, 2.5mm needles are plenty small enough for socks. I'm impressed that you've spent this much time on that sock setup, even if you're not going to end up with the socks.

Does it count if I respond for free stuff? :) I did buy ice cream today, that counts for something, right?
