Now that I've established that these fit me... the knitting is going along well. I increased the purl part of the pattern by 2 on each edge, raising the total stitch count to 72 stitches. That gave me another inch around... and it's perfect. Hopefully tomorrow I'll have the finished sock to show!
In other news, I got the best new bag from Diva Knitting:
I love it SO much! First, of course, because it's got cute little girls yelling F*@K! all over it... but also - it's the perfect sized bag for me. Everything I need fits, and all the little pockets (inside and out) help keep everything organized (for now). And this woman knows customer service. I ordered the bag on Friday - it was at my doorstep on Monday.
