I love a parade

Thank you so much everybody, for the comments and emails of praise and congratulations on my sock pattern. I must admit that I have been quite narcissistic/stalkerish/neurotic, hunting through Ravelry, Twitter, and the general knitterly blogiverse, among other places, to see what people are thinking about it. The response has been almost entirely positive, very flatteringly so! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU. I'm particularly excited that there are already twenty-one projects on Ravelry (not including mine) now using the pattern. And the very first one that I found "in the wild" on the blogiverse was danido's, who made a very sweet small one and seemed to like it a lot.

Needless to say, all of this is very thrilling. Thank you so much, Knitty!

I also took out my camera and got shots of more socks I've been making:

You are a genius!I have been using an afterthough heel because of the roundness, and they are my best fitting socks. Thank you sooo much for sharing!

Your itty bitty newborn socks look very like the Regia 6 ply Caribbean Mirage that I am using for my own, and planning the leftovers for a friend's new baby.

I am doing 2 at a time on 2 circs, so had to modify a tiny bit. Now have the heel and one gusset done on both socks, working on 2nd pair of gussets.
