sockapalooza oh dear

sockapalooza sock, originally uploaded by the pig wot flies.

This was the state of my sockapalooza socks this morning. I knew I was cutting it fine, but I think I overestimated how much knitting I could get done while running around managing a conference.

Sorry sockpal, they're going to be late.

The yarn is Foxglove from Fyberspates, the pattern is based on Adrian's Cable Twist socks but with different sized twisting columns (3, 4 and 5 stitches rather than all 5s) and alternating directions. I like how they look. I'm a little worried that the stitch pattern is eating yarn and I'll run out, but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it. The conference finishes tomorrow and then I'll knit as fast as I can so I get these posted off before I go on holiday.

Mine will be late too. I emailed my sockpal to let her know, and she was very gracious. :-) You're knitting lovely socks, though, so it will be worth the wait, I'm sure.

Your socks are gorgeous! I would be happy to wait for them if they were for me.

Just wanted to let you know that I posted your socks to you yesterday. Hope they arrive safely considering all the postal strikes!

Your Sockapalooza Pal, Carol
