2nd Finished Pair for Summer of Socks 2007

... and just in time too. SOS2007 ends this Friday at midnight, I just made it. I started these on August 15 and finished tonight. This was my first time knitting two socks at a time on two circulars. I liked the method as there's no chance of suffering from the dreaded Second Sock Syndrome.

These socks are the Wild Kat pattern by Deby Lake knit in Tofutsies color 723 "Put Your Foot Down". I cast on with 3.0mm Addi's and finished with 2.5mm Knit Picks 24" circulars. I enjoyed the pattern and the yarn has grown on me.

Next up is Fetching and a scarf for my niece while we travel to Canada this weekend, and then the Second Wave Clapotis KAL starts on Sunday.

Two weekends from now the annual "We Interrupt This Marriage for Hockey" season begins.

Oh good. You're not finishing far ahead of me on the SOS front. I only finished 1-1/2 pairs of socks. Things just kept getting in the way.

Lovely socks. And I can't wait for the hockey season to start.

I really need to make some Tofutsies socks.

I could really get into hockey if there was more of it on network (read: free) TV.

Wow, these socks look awesome - fantastic work!
Hockey season starts here tonight and I'm so NOT ready for it - but I suppose that'll change pretty quickly!

Hi Barb.... I'm so far behind in reading blogs, but slowly catching up.

Your socks look great!

Hockey started here on October 3rd. The Avalanche look good this year, especially Stastny. I'm very ready for hockey!

Are you on Ravelry?

Have you succomb to some knitting accident? Maybe a needle jammed in your keyboard? Has the Clapotis sent you over the edge? :)~
