I finished my second pair of sock challenge socks yesterday. Meet Kai-Mei.
The yarn is Madelinetosh Sock in the color Moreland. I worked these socks on US 1 1/2 (2.5mm).
The 3x3 ribbing on the cuff was fairly boring, and definitely slowed down the progress on these socks, but once I got to the foot my interest picked up and I was able to finish them with fairly good time.
I like that they're mirror images of each other. And I love the saturated color of the yarn.
I also finally got around to taking some FO pics of my first challenge socks, Angee.
I like these ones a lot. More than Kai-Mei, I think.
I'm sad to report that my work blocked Flickr as a social networking site (really??). This limits my ability post interesting posts from work and also diminishes the pleasure I used to get from reading my Bloglines at 3am. Boo!
