This pair is mine, and mine only. They came ready today when watching the start of today's stage of the Tour. The yarn used in this pair is Knit Picks Bare, dyed in Green Tea; 360 meters were used. Pattern idea is mine.
I'm glad that we're counting socks completed during the plunge, even if they were started before June 1. That's because this pair was begun in February 2008. They are a gift for someone who lives hundreds of miles away, and I wasn't sure of the foot length. By the time I found out the length, I was busy with other projects and kept putting these off. Joining the 52PPIII has given me the incentive to finally finish them, so here they are:
They were finished June 30. The pattern is Veil of Leaves by Cat Bordhi. They're knit with Trekking XXL yarn in color 90.
...to knit a pair of socks. This time Trekking XXL Tweed in black was used. It seems the colour black and I can't get along with each other, as I had to frog several times... plus the yarn in the center of the ball was entangled. I had to puzzle the knots out and that made me grumpy for sure. 350 meters were used for a 10" foot size.
