These socks are over like a celebrity couple– they only lasted a few weeks, but made their mark on my world!!!!!!! Apologies to Trent of http://www.pinkisthenewblog.com for stealing the Dunzo phrase.
Sorry for the crappy photo, by the time I charged the batteries for the camera, the sun had gone down (y'see, *someone* left the camera on yesterday when he updated his blog…). Also, I can't try them on, they're too small for my high instep. And they're for a sz 7 foot, and while I have narrow feets, I am a sz 10! Rar!! Bigfoot! Well, not really if you take into consideration my height. Rar!!! Giant!!
Sorry. Happy to be finished! I hope my sock pal ooozer likes them. I will go soak them in a nice little bath now. Yay! Socks!!
Oh, the pattern was *great*- no complaints. Easy repeats. Awesome. For those who aren't following along, I used Anna's Nautilus Pattern, which only deserves to be done in Koigu. I wish I could model them on my feet, the pattern I'm sure is really nice on the foot. Sort of like little embossed honeycombs. One thing stupid that I did was to not look at the W&T instructions, which I didn't know were on pg 1 of the pattern (the directions are on pg 2). So I did the heels with YOs, which is okay, but not as neat as the W&T heels. But the toes! Turkish Cast-on!! I'm never doing a toe any other way. So SEAMLESS. No KITCHENER. You *know* what I mean. And I'm not afraid to try things, but I am annoyed at things that don't immediately take. Kitchener is one of those things.
Now. What's next? Will I finish the Angelina Jacket? Will I start the Hourglass Sweater? Who knows. The grant at work is due to the Gubbermint on Friday, but we're to have it out on Thur. so we can take off and go to the Abilites Expo on Fri (Dude, it's seriously EXCITING–we can meet the Murderball guys!!). So until Thursday at like 6ish, I may be too tired to knit. Tomorrow I am definitely staying late, as there's a class at 7 I'm to attend (the last one on pressure ulcers really made me lose my appetite, but I was able to keep a straight face! Go me!).
