Crazy Person (or, I Swear I Was Normal before Rhinebeck)

You all were right. I just have to learn to flow with the go.

Check out these puppies



Aren't they rad? I've been walking around the house with one on one foot and a different sock on the other. The foot in the store bought sock was feeling left out so I did a switch-er-oo and viola! It’s not anymore.

I have to wait a bit to cast on for the second. My wrist is a bit sore.

Details - One sock in less than a week. Size 3 needles, 7 sts/in...spot on gauge, yarn described in previous post. Pattern from Ann Budd's Pattern Book - which is it? I did a Picot Edge at the top. This was done to keep the color change consistent throughout. Ribbing the top (for her pleasure) did nothing for me.


Here's a better picture of the colors (ribbed, pre-frog):



Be careful, this is what crazy sock yarn will do to you...



A self-portrait for you.

Here's another:




Yay socks...

Was that the socks inducing happiness, or was it blurriness? Or both?

Rocking socks there!

It is true. You are adorable.

I love the way those socks striped up! Fantastic colors, too.

Why am I the only person disturbed by the fact that you can get your foot that close to your head? Either you are very bendy, it is all an optical illusion, or the sock is magical in its wonderful stripyness.

I'm impressed with the flexibility! Beautiful sock. Baby that wrist, or it will never be plural.

You're so wacky! I love the socs, what cool color. So glad you conquered the sock, awesome girl. And you're ever so flexible! Umm, in reference to your title, that you swear you were normal before Rhinebeck, well, umm, I'm not so sure about that since I met you before Rhinebeck, hee-hee! Notice I am not saying I'm normal either, just sayin'.

yay socks indeed! (I am a big fan of the "wear the finished sock" and have yet to fall prey to second sock syndrome; I hope your wrist is feeling better soon!)

If you can do a picot edging, you can do lace, you know! :)
