bamboo, cotton and some kind of pattern

Yesterday I knitted my first sock with a set of bamboo needles. I always wanted to try that and it felt quite interesting: you can´t knit to "hard" because the needles kind of bend but thats good for a rather stiff knitter like me. And they do not klick like the metal ones, so they are good to use in public places.
Another premiere: cotton wool socks. I knitted quite a lot of woolen socks, now I found a great yarn for summer socks. It´s Lana Grossa "Elastico" with 96% cotton and 4% Polyester in a a nice red.
And the third "first time": doing a little pattern on the two top needles. These are diagonal stripes which are not really hard to make but I love the effect anyway.
So all in all: yay!

By the way this is a picture with my old (old!!) camera, I am still waiting for the new one. Then the colors as well as patterns are hopefully visual..
