Two completed projects in one month...a new recent record!

I just cast off my latest pair of socks...Cookie A's Thelonious Socks, which can be found in her book knit. sock. love.

I used 75 grams of Socks That Rock in the colorway Hoofle Foofle. This yarn was a delight to work with...so soft and did not split at all.

I had to restart these socks a couple of times. First, I couldn't figure out how to work in the new stitches I was making with the ribbing. After much angst and searching, I found this (http://www.ravelry.com/discuss/knitsocklove/1539740/1-25) thread on Ravelry, which proved invaluable.

Then, I figured out that my socks were going to be too big, so I frogged and restarted on size 0 needles. I'm a loose knitter, so I should have known better.

After that, the socks flew off of my needles. I worked most of the first one on the cruise I just went on, got home, and knit the second sock in 24 hours.

Here are more pictures of the finished project.

Thanks for looking!

Thank you! Can you believe that I used the self-timer on my camera? I stacked a bunch of books on my patio and had a little photo shoot. A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta d o!:wink:
