YOP: Long Overdue


Last week I promised a YOP post on Tuesday. Well, it is only a week late. Not so bad right?
Well I decided that I wouldn't make a blog post until I finished my socks. Well, I finished them this afternoon. Finally. I am sorely behind schedule. Opps. I finished no socks for the month of August. I've determined that I probably will not knit through this book in a year.
However, that doesn't mean that I will not knit through this entire book... eventually. I will try my damnedest though to get it within about a year. Maybe two years at the rate that I am going.
So. Here are my Jade Escher socks. They are knit out of Dream in Color Smooshy in the good luck jade colorway. One of my favorites in the sock yarn. If the rainbow garter socks have everything that I didn't like about socks. These had everything that I love in socks. A simple but strong pattern that is memorable. A heel flap and gusset and square toe.

Also. Remember the story of the yarn trail? Well here is the remainder of my yarn. Yes, infact more yarn went on a walk then what took me to knit this sock. Wow.

Your socks look great and it is very cool that they have a story attached to them about the yarn going for a walk

Oh dear - that book has 21 patterns. It's very ambitious! I don't think I could manage that in a year, in fact, I'm not sure I'll manage the 17 patterns in my book!

The socks look great!

Is that a honeycomb stitch? It's simply gorgeous -- how will you possibly wear shoes over those socks!?
