Socks, the second attempt...

My prge pal Spinalcat gave me this awesome Tofutsies yarn and some patterns from SouthWest Trading Co. Thanks again, Amy!! All the socks were knit on a size one, so I was a little hesitant, but actually this pattern - Tidal Wave - was quick and fun. The lace pattern was very rhymthic, and fast!! I loved the yarn it was super easy to work with and there is enough left over for at least one more sock, if not two shorties!! And its soy and chitin shell, so it sooths the punk hippie in me! The colors are gorgeous - look how good they look with my new chucks (don't mind the ratty hem of my favorite cargo pants!) All in all, I loved this - now I am debating what to do with the leftover yarn... In the meantime, I cast on the Vinnlands socks from the Anti-craft with some fearless fibers that Angela gave me in SP9. They are going to be more challenging, but that is good too!
