Loopy Academy, Knitting Edition, Twisted Stitches Project

Essential to perfection socks 
I finished my final, official project for Loopy Academy!  This is my Twisted Stitches project and I made the Essential To Perfection socks in Fable Fibers Story in Ruby.  It's been a long time since I knit a pair of socks with this much going on at once!  I've been knitting simple, repetitive patterns that I can memorize easily because I can work on those during odd breaks between subjects as I homeschool Caleb or while dinner cooks.  They're easy to pick up and put down.

This pair of socks, while not a difficult pattern, is just not the kind of thing that's easily picked up and put down.  I had to have the chart available and it's not a pattern that I could stop mid-round comfortably.  I'm glad I knit them though and once I get some better pictures (it's raining here again this morning, and while we need the rain, it's impossible to get good pictures when it's this dark), I'll get everything uploaded to The Loopy Ewe.

This is my last knitting project and I've been thinking about the extra credit projects.  I still have two sewing projects to finish, but I've just about decided that I will be doing the knitting extra credit, but not the sewing extra credit.  I'm not coming up with anything for sewing that I really want to make.  I'll still think about it for a few more days before I order, but that's the direction I'm leaning right now.
