Keeping up (for now)

Well, I've managed to finish my first pair of club socks before the second installment shows up. As far as I'm concerned, that counts as "stash" progress in some convoluted knitterly way of thinking.

Anyhow, here they are:


The pattern was very easy and works well with this yarn. If you decide to knit this one yourself, my only recommendations would be that you might want to take some time to figure out how you're going to do the last three leg decreases before you get to them and you might want to reconsider the toe. This toe is one of those spiral things (I'm too lazy to look up what it's called), and I don't think that type of toe fits as nicely or looks as finished as the traditional toe that you find in most sock patterns. Just my two cents. . .

Can't wait to see what all of you are doing with your yarn. I'm also looking forward to the next installment of the club. Thanks, Roxanne, for making this first skein such a winner.

they look great! I finally found the pattern I'm going to use- one I am making up! Too many choices out there... I better hurry and get them cast on though before the next shipment!
