It's a Kind of Magic

Edited to change the picture size (didn't realize they'd uploaded at 150dpi). Note to self: never blog when you've got only 10 minutes before you have to leave for work!

Few words today; I'll let the pictures do the talking.

The footprint

Pick Up Stitches

Stitches Revealed

Ready for Action

Onward & Upward

The pattern: Cat Bordhi's Houdini Socks. The needles: 2.5 mm Addi Turbo
I'll take pics of the finished socks when they're finished.

Also edited to add: Leslie, I know, I'm supposed to be working on the dress only. However, I need to take one more measurement on Stacey and we've been unable to connect. I did realize last night that I do have more than one set of 5.0 mm needles and have started on the second side (front? back? both are the same) of the dress. These socks are a slight diversion, and a bit of mindless knitting. Nothing wrong with mindless knitting when your dear husband has rented three movies to watch. ;)


  1. So, they're big enough to try on and see how the leg feels in relation to the footprint. How does it? Does this work? Inquiring minds want to know :)

    p.s. I thought you were only knitting the butterfly dress... LOL

  2. Very neat looking socks! Love 'em!
