New Socks!

I received my Sockapaloooza socks yesterday... and then promptly left my pal's contact info on my kitchen table when I left this morning. I'm also waiting for the sun to re-visit central Virginia before I take a picture, but hopefully I'll have an update with photo by tomorrow.

Sockapaloooza Done!



I finished my Sockapaloooza socks on Saturday night. Woo hoo! :) I've decided to rename them my "Palindrome Rib" socks. I cast on 88 stitches on size 0 needles, and did a "K8, P2, K2, P2, K8" pattern around the leg and on the top of the foot. The ribbing pattern makes for some nice stretch, and adds a bit of texture to the socks. The yarn was fun to work with (for reasons I mentioned in my previous Socka post), so it didn't get too monotonous as I was finishing up sock #2. I'll be mailing these out to my pal tomorrow afternoon at lunch.
