Under The Wire

I have been trying to post a photo of my completed socks for the August Sock of the Month KAL 4 for over an hour now with no success ;( I am going to post the pictures and details here at my own blog and hope that will count towards my completed socks...

Here is a picture taken last night:

I really thought I would complete them last night, but it seems I had so many interruptions that they couldn't be done until today! The details? This is the ROZA sock pattern by Grumperina from Spring 2007 Interweave Knits. I knit them with Regia sock yarn (2 skeins with plenty left over) on size 1 dpns. I did not continue with the pattern on the foot. I started this socks in May for a knit a long at my LYS but only finished one sock at that time. Its nice to now have a pair!

It is fun seeing all of the finished socks at this kal and I am looking forward to more completed socks of my own in September!

*Hooray for finished socks!* I also love the photo below of one of Ainsley's daughters. I feel connected in a way, as I have been planning out a nice winter hat, incorporating some of Ainsley's yarn... :)))) (I'll post pics on my blog sometime soon...I hope...I'm suffering the curse of dial-up as well...:)

Your socks turned out just lovely. I'm with you on the slow dial up thing, but I suppose it is better than no internet. I suppose, lol.

That is so lovely that you can do a pair a month! Socks always seem to drag out so for me... :-) These are so pretty.

I love your socks! My daughter knitted me a pair of wool ones last winter and they are my favorites. I need to learn to knit my own.
