So…I finished ’em. Yes I finally completed a decent pair of socks. And I can’t say I love making socks, but I do absolutely love wearing said socks. They fit perfectly on my oddball feet & feel like a dream. And this is some cheap Lion Brand yarn. Who knows what I’ll do when I get some luscious that everyone in blog world raves about?.

So. Stats. For those who care:

Haunted Socks

Started: Oh in various forms since 2003. See this post for the scary details.
Completed: March 16th 2006
Yarn: Lion Brand Magic Stripes in Purple, 1 ball.
Pattern: Lola Ribbed Socks from 2005 page a day calendar. It’s a simple sock with a rib & seed pattern on the cuff. I also had to consult other patterns since there’s a damn line missing from turning the heel.
Needles: Size 3 Clover double pt needles, 4.
Will I make these again? Well I still have a ball of the the Magic Stripes since I was dumb enough to buy the same yarn twice (a year apart). But when I use this yarn again, I will probably try a different pattern.

So I did one of my weekend to do list. Today I might make a hat – I’m eyeing Grumperina‘s Odessa but minus the beads because I love the swirly top. I’m trying to decide if I should use something in my stash or wander up to the LYS for some Cashsoft DK. Hmmmm. I also might be placing an order from KnitPicks… I’m very very interested in the new yarns. And I’m trying to decide if I want to make Orangina for the Sexy Knitter’s Club KAL with Shine.

Apparently my yarn fast is over.
