I drank the beer....
The Guinness socks are finished. Not bad for my first attempt at designing my own socks. (aside from them being to small and no longer fitting my big hoofers) The pattern is 'Fractured Lattice' from Barbera Walker, the yarn is Poems by Wisdom Yarn. So pretty and soft. I'm planning on making another pair for myself, with appropriate adjustments of course.
26.5 hours until the start of Sock Wars. I have my new Addi sock needles thanks to mum. I'm going to divide up my ball of yarn and I'll be ready to cast on as soon as I get off work. I just want to get started! This waiting is killing me. Also the Mystery KAL starts on Saturday. So many pretties to make, so little time.
**The photo isn't mine, I lay no claim to it. It was found on Flickr HERE. Delicious looking photo, see the little shamrock on the top of the foam?
