First Pair of 2011 Finished Socks!

For once - the color in one of my photos is actually very true to the real thing.  At least on my monitor!

Pattern:   Simple Skyp Socks by Adrienne Ku  Yarn:  Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks that Rock Mediumweight  Color:  Bella Coola  Needles:  US 1 - 2.25 mm  Started:  November 1, 2010  Completed:  January 21, 2011
Note: I started these socks just before I started on the Sockhead Hat Binge before Christmas, and they never really got going until after the holidays.  As much as I love the colors in STR, I really do not like knitting with the Mediumweight yarn.  The socks that result are often too heavy for most of my footwear.  I will say that this pattern was fantastic for the pooling that usually occurs with STR.  I may even be able to find a boy to wear these.

They didn't pool at ALL, they striped. Perfect!
Lovely!!! I like mediumweight socks for the cold days and wandering around in my birks. :)
I agree about the Medium weight STR. But the colors are glorious!
Has it ever taken you that long to knit 1 pair of socks?!? I love the colors & bet they'll be welcomed when the temps dip again this week :(
