space invader socks

I just wanted to post my progress on the bmp socks from I'm knitting two at once on two circular needles and it's actually much less confusing than I thought it was going to be. I don't work on it all the time. I have easier projects going on also, but I'm very excited about the progress made thus far. They are for Steve, and while I know he will definitely appreciate them, I also understand that he may only wear them at home, and that's okay with me.

This is my first time knitting two socks on circs and also my first time doing any kind of stranded color work. So far, so good.

I have knitted a number of pairs of socks before and I have never done any reinforcement of the heel and/or toe. If anyone has any comments on this or how I should go about it, please let me know!

The designer of this sock pattern also has a very cool blog called Sock Pr0n. (sock porn) Definitely worth checking out.

You can also find the pattern for these socks, as well as MANY other patterns, by clicking on the photo of the pattern to the left.

Wish me luck!
I'm also working on a sweater that I'm making up as I go along... I know it sounds insane... with some yarn that I got from Midwest Discount Yarn. It's very interesting.
