Knit Socks!

I'm knitting Jimmies! These cute little low socks are so adorable that even the fact that I'm knitting them on size 0 needles isn't dampening my enthusiasm.

Part of my enthusiasm is the yarn, which is Elliebelly, pulled from my deep stash.  This is Ella, a paint brush colorway, dyed on BFL (Blue Faced Leicester) Cash-Silk Sock.  I love the subtle color transitions.

So far, so good.  I'm about halfway through the flap on the first sock and looking forward to making good progress during the Thanksgiving Holiday.

Although I'm typically a very loose knitter and struggle with getting gauge, often going down two needle sizes, I'm knitting these more or less as written.  The pattern calls for size 0 for the cuff and size 1 for the remainder of the sock.  I'm knitting everything on size  0 (mostly because I couldn't find my size 1 DPNS).  The cuff opening looks small, and I'll be interested to see if I end up with a kid sized sockie.  No problem either way — this project is so manageable I decided to knit the first sock as my gauge swatch, as I have plenty of yarn, and I'll take it from there.
