Huzzah! I finished the lovely Kanoko pants!
Front (left) and back (right).
Aren’t they the preciousest? I’m pretty happy with them. And thankfully, the awkwardness of knitting on DPNs was more or less resolved as soon as the seam of the first (right) leg was relatively established (and therefore the pants stopped trying to pull themselves apart). Knitting on DPNs is still not my favourite, but at least I know I can do it without significant hand cramps and/or hatred now. Also, how cute is that seed stitch (the bumpy-looking one)? New skills every day, people.
