I'm in love
That's the sock at 23 rows of the first pattern repeat. (The repeats are 30 rows. So close!) And boy are those stitches tiny:
Sydney asked where I got the pattern for the socks. The pattern is the "sock with peasant heel" from the book Knitting Marvelous Mittens, by Charlene Schurch.
Becki wants to know where I got my 000 needles. I got them at a JoAnn, I think. They're really cheap Susan Bates needles, the same as in this eBay auction. You can probably find better, which I plan on trying to do, too.
I don't know if I'm going to have the time to work on Ingeborg again for a long while. I think the socks may take up the rest of the time I have before the SFC knitalong starts. But related to Ingeborg, Chery asked about pilling with Naturespun sport. I haven't had any. The big test is my Nordic mittens, which have been used a lot, and are not pilling at all. They're at a slightly tighter gauge than Ingeborg, but I really don't think this yarn is prone to pilling, and I'm not concerned about getting pilling with Ingeborg.
