the start of my stripey socks. the yarn is from switzerland, i've had it for about a year now, trying to get up the courage to actually knit socks. i started another pair this week, but hated the needles that came with the kit. i picked up these needles and figured i would try them out first to see if i like them, and before you know it i'd gotten this much done.
i also found this on boing boing: the stardust recovery program has a webcam. better yet, watch the time-lapse compilations from days past.
