syllytuxedocat - I didn't even think of easter eggs, but now that you mention it - I totally see it!  Cheesy
and amarok thanks!  I actually started from the top and knit down so it helped make sure I got them to the length I wanted! Wink

thanks guys!  Cheesy
kaleidoscope_eyes: if you can knit, purl, decrease and pick up stitches then you can make socks!  Believe it or not this is my first *real* pair of socks.  You should totally give them a try - I am sure you will make a lovely pair!
lady_sepulchre: thank you!  These were actually fair-isle!

I made some socks!
I wanted something with color and not grid-like so I came up with these:

maizella: just make sure if you do make a pair that when you do your gauge swatch that you stretch your gauge a bit - if you do it right on the gauge it will end up looking like leggings (at least that's what happened to me) and I had to re-do it.
kjlutz thanks!  I bought a cone of yarn and it looks like they took just about/just over half of the cone.  I have no idea how much yarn that is.  As far as how long - actual knitting time maybe just under 2 weeks.  I started officially in the beginning of January and had several false starts (which I documented in the blog posts) - and would just have them sitting there and stare at them before starting up on them again.

Aww thank you!  They are really warm, soft, and light too.  I kind of wish I had found a less white color but that was the only available color of that yarn.  I am kind of scared to wear them out because they will get dirty easier...
And yes quirkyfaerie you read right!  These technically are my first pair of socks.  This chart: http://home.earthlink.net/~bruxknits/pats/BasicSockChart.pdf is amazing and is how I was able to work it out.  Cheesy

I was inspired by Chanel's f/w '09 collection and decided to knit up my own pair of fuzzy cashmere tights.  I used Barbara Walker's Knitting From the Top as a guide and measured, measured, measured.

The process is documented in the links below:

It is really cold out right now so I wanted to make a headband that is warm but also cute.  And here it is!   Cheesy

I also like the way it ties:
