One Sock Done!!!

As many of you know, I have had several socks on the needles recently and just keep casting on more. None of them match. None of them are finished. Until now. I finally finished ONE sock. Bare in mind it still has no partner, but at least its one less sock crowding up my knitting back. All those double pointed needles were beginning to make a mess. This sock is made using the Padded Footlets pattern from Interweave's Favorite Socks. Weird pattern. I am not sure I will use it again. It seems like more effort than its worth just to have a double-layer sole. Maybe I will change my mind after wearing them, though. I do like the lace pattern-- very simple but pretty--and the lack of a leg. The leglessness is perfect for warm weather and looks so cute and sporty. Even looks decent with shorts which can't be said for most hand knit socks, unless maybe you are wearing hiking boots. The yarn is some of my handpainted Footprints, the color is Beach Sunrise (one of the ones created by Chris-- he doesn't like how it turned out but I love it!). I am going to try to finish another sock before casting on for this one's mate, so if you see me walking around with only one sock on...don't laugh.

As much if not more than the colorway, you have to love that he made an effort and is indulging in one of your passions.
