...but I finished your Socks of Doom tonight. I will be sending them out in the mail tomorrow. But don't give up--you never know how the postal service will behave. It's simply not over till it's over. Here is a preview:I truly hope you will like them. They're only the second pair of socks I've finished to date.
I've tried to wade through the genealogy of assassins on yarnmonkey's blog, and that could take forever. So I'm just going to wait until I receive a package in the mail--it will either be an unfinished pair of socks for me to finish, or it will be a finished pair of socks signalling my demise. Either way, I feel good that I finished these socks in record time for me, qualified for my "S" for September in the Sock-a-Month 2, and especially that I've made a new blog friend in Mamie. You rock, Girlfriend!
Here are the specs on the socks: International Socks of Doom (having a heck of a time linking to the pattern, will try again later), knit with a ball and a skoshe of Plymouth Dreambaby DK yarn (50% acrylic microfiber, 50% nylon). (Now, lest you think this is yucky yarn because of its acrylic content, I will assure you that it is wonderfully soft and supple and knits up beautifully. You must feel it to believe it.) Needles used: size 5 addi's for the magic loop. Pattern notes: What I enjoyed most about this pattern is that I didn't have to keep referring to it every inch or so, because it kept the same ribbing of k3,p3 on one row and k1,p1 on the next row throughout the sock. That came in handy for me, not having to think.
Now I've got to get started on knitting a little sumpin' sumpin' for my Chocolate Swap pal. Don't you worry about me--knitting is what I do. It's who I am.
(Trying to keep a straight face.) Is it working?
