I finished my round 2 socks for Sock Madness in plenty of time to qualify for round 3...They were quite tight on me and when I posted the picture on my Facebook page, one of my former students sent me a message that she just loved them. I asked her what size shoe she wears and these will fit her perfectly. I mailed them off to her and she got them in time to wear them up to Mammoth for the weekend.
I had appointments most of today - doesn't that usually happen when one has a day off from work? Once I got home, I found that the round 3 pattern had been released this morning! I printed it off and grabbed the yarn and needles I had chosen for this round. It's called Blossom and I think it will be perfect for this pattern - lacy flowers will appear on the foot and all around the leg as the pattern progresses. While I'm certainly not very fond of knitting socks from the toe up, I can do this...I just need to be one of the first 25 knitters on my team to complete the pair. We have 2 weeks to finish.
Will let you know how it goes...in the meantime, thanks for stopping by.
