Argyle Socks Update

Well, I finished the first diamonds, and I'm really happy with the way it's turning out.


Here you can see a complete diamond.


The sock will look more like this from the front.

So, yeah. Intarsia is a bit fussy, and it's definitely a bit slow, but it's actually kind of fun. My wife is really impressed with how they are turning out and now wants me to knit her a pair. I figure she can pick out the yarn at Stitches Midwest, which is in just over a week's time!

It's hot here, and I just got back from my 6 A.M. group cycle class. Ergh. At work today, we're having some weird outing with my boss's boss's team over at Navy Pier. I think I was supposed to bring my family or something, but, well... that didn't happen. Anyways, it's an excuse to get out of the office for a bit.

Hey! Those look good! Don't let my husband see them, or I'll be knitting a pair, too. Sockbug

Re: PDF files
I downloaded the free OpenOffice at OpenOffice.org and use it to write my documents. It exports to PDF format. If you don't want to gum up your hard drive with it, you can probably just post a message to one of the lists and someone will convert it for you. Good luck! Sockbug

Wow... I had heard of OpenOffice before, but I didn't realize it could do that! Thanks so much!
