Finished objects, works in progress, and lots of rambling about two sticks and some string...

  PPP socks!

yarn: Knitpicks Dancing in Ballet (discontinued, but there are a few other colorways left on clearance, if you're interested.) Needles:Susan Bates US 1 dpns Pattern: plain old sock recipe. cast on 56 (yarn is stretchy), 2x2 rib cuff, heel flaps.

i called these socks a lot of different things while making them: dancing socks, bubblegum socks, valentine's day socks, spring socks, and finally The Perpetual Pink And Purple Socks. i started these sometime in january and finished them saturday. April 28. these socks took 4 months to knit, making them the slowest pair of socks i have ever made. my 10th pair of socks, plain, no frills, stockinette socks, took me four months! i think they earned their name.

nonetheless, these socks are great. the colors are pure happiness, they fit perfectly, they're light and cottony and perfect for warmer weather. see? my timing worked out fine...

(to my credit, the past few semesters i have commuted an hour a day to work, which gave me a lot of sock knitting time. i took this semester off work, so i only got a row in here and there on these guys before and after classes. but still. molasses.)

now...if i could just finish up the other 10,000 things on the needles, i'd be in good shape!


cute socks! i'm intrigued with the elasticity.
Snazzy socks. Thank you for showing them.
