More Sockish Than Before

I spent some time this weekend working on my second Illini Jaywalker. I'm not sure why it was so hard to get back into knitting a sock this time. I think it has something to do with the needles I'm using - Bryspun dpns, size 2. Very, very blunt tips and a tad bit flexible. I've gotten used to the flexible part - I think my issue is with the lack of pointy tips. Anyway, I got quite a bit done on Illini2 and am almost finished with the gusset decreases! Thankfully, all the stripes are matching up perfectly with Illini1.

Here's a picture of me showing Rosemary my sock progress (click images for a closer look):

And here's a gratuitous shot of me, since I've been a Self-Portrait Sunday slacker for so long:
