I've been knitting like crazy the last few days. I had an unexpected road trip, followed by a couple of snow days which gave me some nice time to work. As a result, I finished the Mamluke socks from Nancy Bush's Folk Socks.
I knit these on size 2 DPN's with Brown Sheep "Top of the Lamb Sports Weight" in Fawn, Harvest, Russet, and Emperor's Purple. I think I'm getting addicted to stranded knitting. The bonus is that the socks are very warm with the floats making the fabric double thick!

Those are beautiful! :heart: You did a great job of matching the stripes too. I have that book. I need to build up the nerve to knit with stranded colors.

The color working is really nice! great job! How long did it take you to make them? Looks really time consuming!

How long did it take you to make them?
It took me about 2 weeks. But I had a few days off work due to snow that allowed me to knit more than my average amount. Learning how to use Elizabeth Zimmerman's method of knitting with one color in the right and the other held in the left really helped me pick up some speed - although I wouldn't say that I am a very fast knitter. It just helps me by not having to drop one color and then pick up another.
