Off to Estonia

Naturespun Sport in Natural, Beet Red, Storm and Nordic Blue

I'm off to a slooooow start on these socks. After whipping through Denmark, knitting 102 stitches on size 0s while doing two-color knitting off of a teeny weeny chart is painfully slow. I started these on Wednesday night and foolishly thought I would be through the color chart when I got home from Stitch 'n Bitch. Silly me. I'm now halfway through the chart.

I've also started a pain of plain, plain, plain socks for Dulaan with my leftover Denmark yarn. The Estonians aren't walking around knitting material. A few people have asked about the thickness of the Denmark socks. Cascade 220 is listed as a worsted weight yarn but I like it more as a DK yarn. Knit on 3s it made a nice firm fabric--not bullet-proof and not too thick to wear with my shoes.
