Sockapalooooza Socks Done!

I had a nice long knitting day and finished my Sockapalooooza socks!

Tomorrow they'll be heading off to their new home. :)

Pattern: Gentleman's Sock in Railway Stitch (with modifications)
Yarn: Knit Picks Essential in Fawn with random black for contrast
Started: 7/21/07
Finished: 8/5/07

After the initial pattern confusion these were a nice knit, although with a few more purls than I usually like. I really like how the texture pattern turned out!

Up next on the needles... more socks!

In other news, I had the opportunity to participate in a knitting round table tonight for the Knitting Time Together podcast. We discussed many knitting-related topics including stash guilt (I totally have it!), LYSs, and knitting stereotypes. Lots of fun!
