ta da! they're done~

yeah for socks off the needles!

this was a fun pattern

once i picked the correct yarn that is

i knew better than to use a varigated yarn but.......

i had just purchased a really fun yarn and really, really

wanted to use it

the results ummm......

 not so good

due to the yarn being varigated

the cross hatch pattern didn't show up at all

i was about 1/3 of the way done with the sock and decided

to frog it

i'm glad i did

choosing a solid yarn really showed off the pattern

and in the end

i was much happier!

you can get all the details on my ravelry page

Congrats on finishing your project. I can't get over how they look like socks that we could buy at the store, such fine detail work...Really nice job!

They are great! I am sock deficient and so I love seeing the socks that fellow knitters make.

Very nice work! But I must say I am partial to the bare little feet in your header!! Oh my goodness... sweet love:)

Also, I like your new blog look... very fresh.

Has it really been 3 weeks since my last post? I guess the sidebar doesn't lie:)

Brilliant job, Katie. I prefer this pattern with a more solid yarn as well.
