Baudelaire for Socktoberfest: Finito

Just bind off and had the pictures taken before I start procastinating and blaming the weather. My bit for Socktoberfest 2006 is done!



Pattern: Baudelaire by Cookie A
Yarn: 2 hanks of Knitpicks Gloss in Cocoa
Needle: 2.5mm circulars, Addi Turbos
Size: Small
Time to finish: 2 weeks

I had a bit of problem trying to match both socks. Re-knitted the gusset and heel twice for the second sock. I guess its best to knit both socks at the same time. And thats precious lesson learnt. Also, Gloss is really lovely to knit with. This is the second time I've knitted with it. Stay tuned to see what's the first project I used with Gloss.

Thanks for all the lovely comments on Aegean FFL. I am still waiting for the right occasion to wear it. Most probably at the next wedding reception in December. Meanwhile off to cast on for Rusted Roots

Very pretty! I've not tried that yarn but I might have to give it a go. You're socks are just gorgeous!

Wow, they are beautiful! Did you use the "larger instep" for yours? I tried making it, but the leg is too tight for me to slip my food into it!

Those are gorgeous socks, very nice. I wish I can make a pair for myself, I get distracted too easily. And your Aegean Blue Shawl is beautiful, too.

Yay Baudelaires! I'm glad you enjoyed the pattern, at least enough to finish them. :-)
