Hey, y'all!

I know it's been forever since I've been on...I have a good excuse, though. I was out working on my tan the whole month of Jan. :mrgreen: Really, I needed to escape the blah-ness of NYC for a little while. Now, I'm back and freezing my heinie off. :(

While I was away, I managed to finally finish up these dang socks. I've been working on them FOREVER.

More info on my blog.

The yarn is from our very own CindyH (http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=106197) and is absolutely what makes the socks so fabulous. Thanks, chica!!

The pattern is knitty's pomatomus (http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter05/PATTpomatomus.html)

They are beautiful! :cheering: :cheering:

I've looked at this pattern several times, but haven't tackled it yet. Was the pattern part really hard? I have several sock yarns in my stash and would love to attempt these.

Oh yeah, haven't seen you around for a while. Lucky you, getting to escape the blah. Your hippopotamous socks look, as people here say, "loverly".

Thank you!! :muah: :muah:

Deb, the pattern really isn't all that difficult - it's not rocket science. All it is is just a bunch of purls, yo's, and knit-through-the-back loop. The instructions are pretty clear, and it's blaringly obvious when you've made a mistake. My biggest thing with it is just that I found myself having to constantly look at the chart, so they seemed to go by so slowly.

You all should make these! They're time-consuming (for me, at least), but they're gorgeous! Oh, and use Cindy's delcious yarn! ;)
