Cotton

Cotton


Actually I finished this on Sunday and was doing kitchener stitch on the toes of the second sock by the time we received our Olympic Medal after a drought of 48 years.

The first sock was done awhile ago but the second took a bit of time. So what could be more apt than to put this up for Ravelympics 2008? Of course after I finished Ester, I was all ready to finish more projects! I zipped through this with turning the heel on friday while watching the Table Tennis Women's Team Semi-Finals. And the rest of the leg and toes while waiting for and watching the Finals on Sunday. The Semi-Finals was such an exciting match I had to stop a few times for fear of breaking my needles. And the finals? Well it was such a good match I did stop and watch in awe many times~!

The silly thing is, I realized this wasn't tagged for Ravelympics after all!! For some reason, it was just not tagged and I just thought it was. Much to my disappointment, of course. Sigh. :( But in a way I'm quite glad since I got to finish another project.

These are so lovely and your Ester is coming along beautifully. I haven't finished anything in sooo long and am hankering for a nice FO.

I'm the same. I'm living vicariously off your FOs. Love these colors. The pattern looks comfortable, nice and cushy.

Wow! I love the colors of those socks, they have all of my favorite colors combined into one piece of happiness.

So how do they feel being worn? I knitted a bit with cotton and was a little disappointed at the lack of ... pulliness. I'm sure there's a better word for it though. But do those socks feel snug and holding up?

Thanks for your time!
