Who knew?

I finished my Raspberry Azure socks yesterday, and I was meaning to start on Elfine's Socks today, but somehow this happened:

Yes, that's a decent bite out of the first leg of the Snowflake Socks from the Fall 2007 Interweave Knits.

Look, I'm as surprised as anyone here, as I've been a closet non-fan of colourwork socks -- "let's keep the colourwork where we can see it and where it won't get walked on," -- but come on! Look at these socks! I'm totally in love and I'm already making plans for knee-high socks of a similarly patterned nature. Who knew they could look this good or be this much fun?

Those are YUMMY!! I absolutely love them.
I know what it's like to have a bug in your ear. I may have cast on a Calorimetry today :S

I totally missed those on my perusals of that magazine. Maybe once I get some colourwork under my belt... what yarn are you using?

Nevermind, just looked at Ravelry.

I couldn't resist those socks either - have a pair in progress. (Well, in amongst the 8 or 9 other socks I have in progress...)
I can't thank you enough for the pig mitten pattern. I made my dad a pair for Christmas - he raises pigs, so they were SO appropriate. He was charmed with them.
