I am sure it took me longer to figure out how to post and post a picture than it took me to knit one of the socks - but I think I have it all under control - at least till next week.
Didn't finish the two pair of socks till late last night - the races were toooo good to miss and since I have to look at what I am knitting, I just had to put the knitting down for the race.
The large socks are for my SIL and they are huge. Made in the Monkey pattern (have since discovered there is another pattern called the Monkey pattern - will have to make those next) using Regia Surprise Color and Phildar. They used 150 grams (close to it anyway with only a few yards left over).
The bright socks (wish I could get a picture that really shows how LOUD they are, are made from Regia Mini Ringel (color has been discontinued, wish I could get lots more of it) and the pattern is Jeanie Townsand's Michigan Cherry pattern. There is also the solid red which is Phildar Preface. They used 100 grams.
This should add 250 grams and 50 points for a finish (300) to my total (at least I think that is correct - boy trying to sign into Google really has me messed up - must be my age, I use to be able to handle things like this when I was younger).
I plan to send the picture to Jeanie as I am sure she never, in her wildest dreams saw her pattern looking like these socks. I love them and just hope I get up the nerve to wear them - in public!!!
Wish Mark Martin had won - maybe next time.
Off to start the next sock - they are SO additive.
