Socks Are Mean!
(and Koigu is tough on the fingertips!) So, after a weekend of Famous Dave's BBQ, Lacrosse, Hockey, Hockey parties, Football and very negative temperatures through the whole thing; these socks are kicking my *ss! Here is Eagle's Flight sock #1, ready to be kitchenered. I am going to cast on sock #2 this morning. But I think I need a little distraction.

So I'm going to cast this on too. Isn't it purty!!

I'm tempted to dig out a purple skein, because really, didn't Prince totally ROCK last night?

Comments:
Purple rain... in the driving rain. Fantastic!

Great sock, btw. Do you really think koigu is rough on the fingers? Try Cestari! :) [still has straw in it]
 
When I heard Prince was going to be the half time act, I was almost ALMOST, tempted to try and catch it, but watching any part of the Superbowl really goes against the grain.
 
I missed Prince????

I always think I had a really busy weekend until I read your blog on Monday morning!:-)You guys are on the go!
 
So Koigu is hard on the fingers? I have some in m y stash but I have never knit with it yet. I have a stranded glove kit with Koigu. I wonder if it softens after washing it....

And I vote purple. And not because of Prince. (I was never a huge fan of his nor did I watch the Super Bowl.)
 
His show was very cool - especially Purple Rain in the rain!

Koigu hard on the fingertips??
 
The first sock looks terrific. Can't wait to see your new project. :)
 
What size needles are you using on your socks? Those look teeny tiny! I love using Koigu, but I tend to use 1s and 2s for most of my socks. Sometimes I'll go down to 0s. I'm also not a tight knitter. I ADORED Prince at the Super Bowl. I just wish he had had more time so he could have sung full songs.
 
I love the yarn but I bet it's equally gorgeous in purple. I'm surprised about the Koigu. The stuff I've used has been delicious but I've never made socks from it. Hmmm?
