Sock Wars

Friday was an exciting day. I checked my e-mail about a zillion times looking for my dossier (with the info about my target) and pattern, but nothing. I checked the Sock Wars Forum, and saw a post about bad storms over Northern Ireland (that's where Yarn Monkey lives, and she is sending out the dossiers), lots of folks without power, blah blah blah. When I got home on Sunday, I double checked, and Yarn Monkey had managed to post the pattern on her blog. I got busy, and had my sock 1/2 finished before bedtime. I guess I'm not really hardcore, because I didn't stay up all night to finish.

I didn't have my target, so I turned the heel and knit a bit, then put the first one on stitch holders and started the second one. The color isn't very good in this photo - these socks are a gorgeous wine color, the yarn is a new yarn from Cascade - 100% merino superwash.

Gotta go - TRHM says I'm wasting knitting time, LOL! Socks will be in the mail on Monday. Check out the forum - lots of warriors have ALREADY MAILED their socks - YIKES!!!!!!

I've started to knit the first sock, your colour looks beautiful. Mine is white, but I'm planning to colorize it after with KoolAid. Happy knitting.
