Blue Christmas socks, FO.

Yarn: Koigu KPPPM
Needles: KnitPicks dpns, US 3
Pattern: my Plain Vanilla sock recipe, featuring a round heel and wedge toe
Started: early December 2006
Finished: early January 2007

Notes: this was my first project worked with metal needles, which were much more heavy than i expected. i discovered the joys of toting such needles in purses (the stabbing! the slipped stitches!!) and decided that maybe i should shelve the metal needles for a while. regardless, these socks kept me busy during a dreary and depressing holiday season.

Fun Fact: these socks allowed me to hone my reading-and-knitting-at-the-same-time skills. they also travelled with me to every holiday event and party i attended last season.

Wowee!! Those are some beautiful socks! There's just something about Koigu...

(Eeek! The word verification picture didn't load! I'm not sure what to do)

Love that colour! I am not a fan of metal dpns either. In fact, I have sworn off dpns for traveling altogether after I nuked my 2mm ponys in my purse last month. Errg.

How many pairs of socks do you have now?
