Toasty waffle socks

With two secret projects on the go I felt the need to cast on something quick and bloggable this evening.

Waffle socks

There's something ineffably satisfying about knitting with one's own handspun. So far sheer contentment and (I have to admit) a fair bit of smugness is being knit into every stitch. The experience is comparable to knitting with a really lovely variegated yarn only instead of going "ooh" at an especially pretty colour I'm going "ooh" at a particularly evenly spun bit of yarn.

I'm knitting the socks in waffle stitch (two rounds of K2, P2, two rounds of K every stitch) as the marled effect means that there's not much point in doing anything fancier.
