on and off the needles

I just started these footies, Bunny Hop Anklets from Knit Picks to use some of my left overs. It is an easy pattern to knit and very stretchy. Interesting how the colors of the yarn have grouped together.The first pair striped all the way.
This pattern has a heel that looks like it will stay up, there are 60 rows of wrap and turn and I can always add the bunny tail if they slide down in my shoes.
 My 13th pair of socks for 2013, I think daughter will love them. Trekking yarn
 I also finished The Age of Brass and Steam shawl Zauberball yarn but I am not thrilled with it. I have not blocked it yet because I may rip and start over. It's a good thing yarn is so forgiving. My last row of eyelet is in my final rows and my cast off is tighter than it should be. It curls. There are yarn overs at the beginning and end of each row, my purl rows have a much looser yarn over than my knit rows which is why I have a sharp inside curve and an almost straight inside curve. Any advice from fellow knitters??-- Ann-- Linking to Judy's On the Needles

Thanks for the link to the anklets. I'm always looking for patterns for leftover sock yarn since I knit so many socks. It is funny how the colors pooled in this.
