Finished Olympic Socks

I finished my project for the knitting Olympics tonight! Yea! I'm finished. I'm glad I signed up for Yarnharlot's challenge. I learned several new techniques and I finally got over "sock fear". I learned all the different part of sock, turning a heal, and of course kitchner stitch. Although I'm lucky that kitchner stitch wasn't the only element. I'm not proficient in that yet. But it was a lot of fun.

I didn't really get second sock syndrome, but as soon as the first was finished it seemed unfair that I had to wait to have a pair of finished socks. So for my next pair, I will try two on two needles. I'm also going to treat myself and get a book on sock knitting, Sensational Knitted Socks by Charlene Schurch.

I'll be keeping all my sock yarn and of course getting some more. My husband liked them too; even tried them on. Now he's waiting for his own pair.

Congratulations! You're an "Olympian!" Those socks look awfully comfortable! I'd like to know how the "two needles" thing works out. jenny macc
