Red Dwarf Socks

I am knitting, I'm just not posting. It seems there just isn't time to do both consistantly, so knitting wins out.

I'm working on the Red Dwarf Socks found at Turtlegirl's Bloggy Thing right now. They're knitting up quick, I'm enjoying working with thicker yarn. It's Regia 6-ply (in the Jungle Colourway) on 3mm needles, much faster knitting than my standard 2.25mm ones! I used the figure 8 cast on as reccommended, but doubled the number of stitches to cast on for the start. I like the toe much better done this way, 16 stitches to start makes a really pointy toe, and I don't have pointy toes!
