Leafling Socks

Last night, I finished one of the two pairs of socks that I started when I hit dirt in Oklahoma City.

The Leafling socks. They are done.

These really went pretty quickly. I don’t generally work on multiple pairs of socks simultaneously. This was also my first experience with Socks that Rock, and is the first kit that I did from the 2008 Rockin’ Sock Club.

I didn’t make any mods to this sock, although I had to rip out significant chunks on the second chunk … because I wasn’t paying enough attention!

It’s with STR mediumweight, so I will certainly be working a STR lightweight sock early in the Summer of Socks so that I can know what to get with my RSC discount coupon :)

Very nice! I find it amusing that your Leaflings and Sarah's Leaflings look so different. I am incredibly easy to entertain.

(HA. My verification word almost spells dirt!)

Pretties! I guess I need to find my Lucky and get it wound up--all my yarn has been shuffled around due to the Great Home Renovation project. I love working with STR!

I can't believe you were an STR virgin until now!

I think these were my favorite RSC kit/pattern thus far. I'm definitely going to knit this pattern again, because it fits so well.

See you tonight!

They look fantastic! So pretty! I can't wait to do mine. But I have so many other socks to finish first!
