ignore the foreign country behind the curtain

fire and ice, originally uploaded by gradschoolknitter.

Hey look! A sock! Nevermind that I said that I would try to take pictures of knitting in interesting places around Madrid...

OK, so I said I would take pictures of knitting in interesting places around Madrid... but I was actually really sick this past week and spent a lot of time either in bed or seeing doctors. So most of the foot of this sock was finished up in waiting rooms. It was interesting to knit in public in Spain, actually... a lot of the elderly people were fascinated to see someone younger knitting. They seem to think that in Spain it is still mostly older women in little pueblos doing the handcrafting... although I think this group (whom I AM going to get to know at some point in the near future!) would have something to say to the contrary.

So, pictures of knitting hanging out around Madrid SOON. For now, the sock:

Pattern: Socks on fire! by.. me! rav link, or see sidebar for direct pdf download.
Yarn: Jojoland Melody Superwash
Needles: US 1

Mods: Added extra repeats (one I think) to the cuff.

I am feeling better and was going to try and do this in some interesting part of Madrid today... but it was raining and is still super overcast so I don't really want to get caught out in the rain... sorry!
