Olympic Copper - FO!

These are some sweater-like socks.  The temptation to keep these is pretty irresistible.

Pattern: Olympic Copper by Anne Hutchison Yarn: Schaefer Yarn Company Heather Color: Not sure  Needles:  US 1½ - 2.5 mm Started:  May 10, 2010 Completed: May 27, 2010

Note:  These socks feel a little bit like a sweater - very nice.  As lush as the yarn is, there were three knots as I knit along - very infuriating.

Watched the last game of the Stanley Cup last night and I have to say, the winning goal was so quick and surprising it took a few minutes to sink in that the whole thing is over.  Yay for the Blackhawks though!  Now I only have Youth Lacrosse and Twins Baseball to cheer for this Summer!

Yup. The socks are keepers. they are a nice subtle color, too - perfect with khakis or jeans. I like the cables. very pretty. Not TOO girly, though - a man could wear these, too.
They're lovely socks!!
