Here's No. 4

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:

fo veil of leaves

They were finished June 30. The pattern is Veil of Leaves by Cat Bordhi. They're knit with Trekking XXL yarn in color 90.

It never took me that long 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.

Completed Socks #3 Ayers Rock

These are my third pair of socks - for my younger son in European size 25.
The yarn is Mexicko Country Colors Ayers Rock.

I am behind my schedule but I hope to catch up soon!

Pair #6 and #7

I'm bad at updating blogs. Forgive me!

Pair #6:
Pattern: Basket Check from the Little Box of Socks.
Yarn: Violet Green Socrates March Sock Club, colourway "Beanstalk"
Needles: 2.5mm.

I loved this pattern, but if I made it again I'd do a plain foot. The slipped stitches made the foot turn up like pixie shoes!

Pair #7:Pattern: Improvised from the Violet Green Sock Pattern Generator, its a baby sock.
Yarn: Regia Galaxy
Needles: 2.5mm

These were great, only took about a day to make them!
