I'm not. Yet. I've only got as far as the gauge swatch and that didn't go smoothly, seeing that I need 5 dbl point needles size 4, not 3 in size 4 and 2 in size 5. I like to wing it, though.
The thing on my blog is a neck warmer, btw. Duh, FizzyLizzy! I too have started knitting again after a long drought. I'd love to try socks! Right now I'm using up extra yarn on kids mittens...you can never have too many! Missed you at circle!
