The deadline for Sockapalooza 4 sort of crept up on me. August sounded so far away when we started.
Then of course, there was the whole 'knitting three socks' due to my monumental stupidity.
Thankfully, they are all done and I have indulged in the usual cavorting and contorting that is required to take photos of one's own feet.
Pattern: Diagonal Rib Socks by Ann Budd. It was in Interweave a while back, but you can get it as a download from Knitting Daily.
Started: 4th June 2007
Finished: 3rd August 2007 - remember that's for 3 socks people!
Yarn: Lovely Koigu, bought from Stash a good while back. I can't remember the number, but if I find the ball band I'll add it in.
Needles: 2.75mm Clover bamboos
Such a nice pattern - very easy to remember the repeat. Not having a cuff was a little surprising; it would be interesting to see what a pair would look like with some sort of ribbing at the top. I knitted the pattern pretty much as is, although I made the legs a smidge shorter as I was worried about running out of yarn. They fit very well and I would definitely do another pair at some stage.
Now the socks are off for a bath and I am off to find a suitably cheesey postcard of Somerset and some other goodies to include in my pal's package.
