one sock down

and one to go.

here's the first sock completed. i really like the way it turned out!

except for that little hole where i turned the heel. i sewed that up as soon as i saw it in the photo.
the knitpicks is really soft and i love the way the colors turned out. who knew koolaid could be so cool?
ok. i'm sorry thats what you get for letting me knit late at night :) here's a closeup of the stitch pattern. it's much smoother without the purl rows. definately happy with the way it turned out. can't wait to make the other!

the pattern is lacy scallop socks by sock bug with several changes:
i didn't do the decreases halfway down the leg, and i just moved stitches forward to work a short row heel (instead of heel flap) on only 33 stitches. then scooted the stitches back to the front to work the foot. for the toe i did decrease rows every other row for an inch then every row until i had the same number of stitches that i had when i stopped doing short rows on the heel.
sorry does that make sense?
i'm gonna stop now. and i'll cast on for the second sock sometime before saturday i guess. we're snowboarding this weekend and i'd like to to knit in the car. that is if i can get dave to drive ;)
or maybe since i'm so far ahead i should work on shirley's mittens? hmmm. decisions.
decision made i'm gonna finish shirley's mittens before i work on the second sock. i might even finish my mom's clogs too. damn all those things that come in pairs! :)
