No more sock!

Look!!




Socks!





That's plural!



They're fraternal twins, but somehow midway through the bottom of sock #2 (right) it became identical. Gauge is a fickle friend, Harry. (Yes that was a Harry Potter joke.) (Shut up.)

Yarn: Lion Brand Magic Stripes in Purple Pattern.

Pattern: The one on the label. Yes, my creativity is astounding here.

Needles: Oh, I'm so glad you asked. Please see the gory details here, but in general, some size 4 Clover bamboo double points and some size 3 Boye aluminum double points. Both worked well.

Here they are again, basking in their finished glory. Behold!

Yes, righty (#2) is still a little spacious so I'm going to wash them in hot water. Now, I know what you're thinking, but the wool in this yarn is superwash so it can't shrink too much. *ahem*

One of these days, blogs like yours are going to suck me into this mysterious cult of *knitting*. I sense that there might be a Dark Mark out there w/ knitting needles blazed across it somehow.

Seriously, though, I'm so envious, and the socks are really cute!!
