Blue Socks!

Pattern: My own (loosely based on the Conwy socks from Knitting on the Road)
Yarn: Knit Picks Memories in "Yukon"
Needles: metal dpns US 1
Begun: March 20th (ish)
Finished: June 19, 2006 (with a loooooong break in the middle!)

Thoughts: Well, if you remember back in March, when I finished sock 1, I was feeling frustrated with variegated yarn. I wanted to make the Conwy socks (evidence of which can be seen at the top of sock 1) but the pattern was lost. In the end, I love these socks. They are soft and cushy, and I really, really like the fraternal dark-light patterning between the two socks. Now I have to wait until fall to wear them (it was almost too hot to sit through the photo-shoot tonight, and it's almost 8 p.m.!)

In honor of the completion of the blue socks, I leave you with this:

My friend's cat had kittens, none of which I thought were gonna make it. I gave them all temporary names (my friend is out of town right now -- she should probably name her own cats!) I was calling this one "Blue" because, well, when he was littler (and even a little now), everything about him was tinted blue -- his eyes, his fur, etc.

Love your socks - and how well they coordinate with Blue Kitty! I think Blue Kitty would look nice in your house. :)
