The Ugliest Sock Yarn EVER!!!

Yes. They are officially finished!!! i started and finished these socks in January, but I never got around to grafting the toe.

Yarn: Online Supersock Dyelot: Super Ugly
Needle: Sz 1 Addi Bamboo 5"
Started: January
Finished:March 8, 2007 (all knitting was completed in January!)
Pattern: Picot w/ Plain Stockinette and Peasant heel.

I had this yarn in my stash, wayyyyyy in the back of my stash for over 2 years. I purchased it b/c the store owner talked me into it. I do love the way it fits, but the colors remind me of something stomach turning and not so pleasant. Anyway, they're done and wearable. I couldn't bear to give them away and burden someone else!

Yay!! One finished Jaywalker!! The other will be cast on shortly. I also did a Peasant heel for this sock.

This is the best lip gloss ever! (or as my niece would call it as a toddler "ips glop")

Happy Knitting!!

Hi EveKnits,
I agree--the sock yarn is not *ugly*, it IS very colorful. I like your Jaywalker(s) in progress, and your kitties are adorable snuggling like that. Thanks for commenting on my blog. My camera and computer are not talking to each other right now--haven't been able to add new posts. But I do have some more socks on the needles and will post when can.

Heh heh, I have a sock going that looks almost just like that--but I WILL gift it to some (un)lucky soul, LOL.

Your Jaywalker is nice! And now I have to get some of that gloss. :-)
