The thrill of victory, the agony of de-feet!

I am thrilled to show off my finished Hedera socks. These please me very much. The pattern was a bit of a challenge for me; for some reason I could not memorize the four pattern repeat until very near the end. I had to have the pattern with me at all times. I made some mistakes, but for my very first lace socks, not too shabby.

A better view of the lace detail:

Onto the agony:
On Saturday I was taken out of Sock Wars by a lovely pair of Sunflower-yellow socks of doom:

My assassin, Inkslinger42 offed me with style, including a delicious bag of Italian chocolates to ease the pain of death. Great job Tanya.

More socks? Yes, Please!

Socktoberfest 2006

The monthlong celebration of Socktoberfest kicked off yesterday. I am marking the month by trying a new technique, toe up socks. I'll be using Pepperknit's Anastasia pattern with Cherry Tree Hill yarn. How will you celebrate?

ooooooo...Jackie, I love the Anastasia pattern! I've been eyeing it myself, but have avoided it b/c of the toe up issue. I just haven't been ready to tackle that just yet. I've got a ton of socky business to do this month already, so I won't be trying it just yet. And rest easy, downed warrior, that you have slain an opponent, and your doom was not in vain! Long live hand-knit socks! Death to cold feet! (hmmm...i think the yarn dyes may have gotten to me...)~h
