Maniacal Laugh

*Insert Evil Laugh* Finished socks. Before St. Patrick's Day! Hooray! These are the Skew pattern from Knitty knit in Vesper Shamrockin'. I received the yarn last Tuesday and cast on that night. I finished the first sock the following afternoon. (I really focused on that first one to get it done.)

Aren't they pretty? I love them. I just love the way this pattern fits my feet too. They're so cozy and unusual.

I love how strange and cool the heel looks. I do have to switch to size 2 (2.75mm) needles once I start the gusset increases for the heel though because I knit this yarn on size 1s (2.25mm) and they're too tight through the heel if I knit it on 1s (which I learned the last time I knit this pattern.)

Now I'm going to attempt to finish off a pair of socks that have been languishing before the start of the new month when I would like to knit the next Vesper in my KAL plan.
