Twisted Pretzel Twists... and Booties

Yarn: Arial, 100% superwash merino from TwistedFiberArt.com, colorway Xavier. I found it on Etsy.

Pattern:
Mini Pretzel Twists by Monica. I got mine at the Loopy Ewe.

Needles: US2 aluminum dpns, as always.

Last night I was studiously avoiding all of my deadline knitting. "What better way to avoid all that other stuff than to start something new?" I thought. So I pulled out the yarn, wound it up, and started knitting. I love the way this yarn stripes, and I love the tiny little pretzels in the pattern and I love knitting this sock. I feel much more like myself now that I'm avoiding my responsibilities. Honk if you just have to stay up until 3:30am sometimes in order to see how the first pattern repeat is going to turn out...

A very sweet Saartje's-Booties model showed up at work this afternoon and wanted to show off her fashionable footwear all around.

Couldn't have matched that outfit any better if I'd tried. How cute!
