Happy Feet

Admittedly, not the fastest socks in the East anymore, but most certainly my personal best taking just 11 days when my usual habits leave me counting months to completion, and not days. I can no longer see my toes when standing, so had to pose seated to get this shot, lest I lean too far foward and topple over like a Weeble. But at least my ankles aren't swollen (yet).

Project Specs:
Yarn: Socks that Rock, "County Clare", medium weight
Needles: Addi Turbos #1 (magic loop)
Pattern: none - 60 stitches stockinette
Notes: Still completely smitten with this yarn, and am trying to rationalize why I must purchase more of it, despite having enough sock stash to keep me going into next fall, easily.

Hooray for finished socks! 11 days is faster than my normal time which is generally 14 days.

Your feet deserve those socks. Pedicure by wool I say for the last trimester. And you know I'd snatch them off your feet if I could, I love them so. Lust is cruel like that.

Lovley yarn, and what a fitting name! :) The socks look great, and I think 11 days are really fast. I don't think I've ever gone under a month...

Those are so, so pretty! I clearly remember not being able to see my feet. Such a weird realization. Definitely made better by the fact that you know your feet look awesome in those socks! *grin*

You must buy some more to fill the void left by the County Clare which is no longer in your stash. Nature abhors a vacuum, you know. (or a void, or whatever that saying is, which means go get some more STR)
