Walk on the Ocean

There's a reason Kristin is my favorite fiber pusher; her color sense is really unmatched. These finished socks make me think of a tropical ocean -- the deep blues of the water and the rusty browns of driftwood.

Pattern: basic stockinette worked over 60 stitches, with a 3x2 ribbed cuff and Eye of Partridge heel flap
Yarn: my handspun BFL from the March All Spun Up Spinalong
Needles: two 12" US 1 (2.5 mm) Addi Turbo circs
Started/Completed: March 28/April 6

I finished the gusset and most of the foot of the second sock yesterday afternoon while The Mister and I went to see Adventureland. The movie was pretty good, and apparently it made for some good knitting time, because when I pulled the sock out again this morning, I only had an inch and a half left before the toe.

Little did I know when I cast these on that I'd actually have a chance to wear them soon -- would you believe it's snowing right now?

I had to sweep an inch of snow off of my car this morning. Not cool. Pretty socks, though!
