I do still knit. Just not much. The green sock (Miss Babs Yummy Sock in Rock Wall) got ripped a few times until I could decide the number of stitches and needle size I was happiest with. This particular combination (64 stitches on size 1 dpns) seems to work pretty reliably for me. I like my socks to be densely knit, and without a lot of ease. So the green grows, sporadically.
Below it is the start of a new sock, or rather a cuff, knit in twisted k1p1 ribbing. That is slow slow going for me. Not the most practical ribbing, but it's pretty. I'm hoping this will grow up to be a pair of Bavarian Twisted Stitch socks, from Cat Bordhi's Socks Soar on 2 Circular Needles. This isn't my favorite knitting technique, but the pattern is interesting and different. The pattern instructions are not the clearest things I've ever read, and the socks require attention, which I'm sadly short on.
