Sock Madness 3 - Round 3

Just a short post today...I'm knitting till my fingers bleed today! Not really, it just sounds dramatic, doesn't it? I am knitting like a fiend today. Round 3 came out yesterday afternoon and once I got home I began to knit. I've got the day off today so that leaves me time to knit as well. This round they are only taking 12 folks from each team so time is my enemy. I'm using a lovely yarn I got from a friend in Ireland. 80% merino wool and 20% bamboo in a color she calls Poppy. I adore the feel of the fabric it makes. I'll try to post again at the end of the week with a picture of the finished pair. In the meantime, here is the progress so far.

Thanks for stopping by. Later!

I meant to say on the thread how much I really love that color! I hope the knitting hasn't been too stressful.

What a great color! The yarn looks dreamy. I bet it will feel wonderful on the toes!

Again, Sal, your socky skills amaze me. They look wonderful even if they're going to make your fingers bleed...ha. *grin*
