faster than a speeding train...

The Marble Arches pattern from October's Rockin' Sock Club kit is addicting and fun. I cast on for the first sock Monday night and here it is on Thursday morning and the second sock is already underway! I love the colors of the Pink Granite Socks that Rock. It's funny how it striped around the leg, but for the foot it did some really intense pooling (there is a stitch count change from the leg to the foot). Luckily I love striping as well as pooling - that's why I knit with hand dyed sock yarn:) Having knit a few socks with non-socks that rock lately, I had nearly forgotten how much I love to knit with this stuff. The colors, texture, and substance are all outstanding. I'm hoping to finish these up before I get a little shipment I'm expecting from Blue Moon that will include the yarn necessary to knit some knee highs. Yea!

That looks awesome - I am hoping to complete my first one soon. I think it is so cool how they are all turning out differently.

Lov' It...curious to know, where did you get the sock holders?

Wow that was fast.Looks terrific.

I tried the heel today but because I'm using a smaller # of stitches it didn't work, so ripped that out and on to the traditional flap heel.

I'm expecting a little str shipment too...found a shop on the Oregon Coast that had some good black/grey neutrals in stock, so they're on their way to me!

I love your socks ! I have to ask, how many pairs do you have now?

Oh my I'm not a pink person, but that yarn is just gorgetastic!!!
What pattern will you be using for your knee highs? I'm thinking about knitting myself a pair too, but haven't found a pattern that I like so far.

Cheers Eva
