We've moved beyond the frozen di*dos

So, yesterday, I FINISHED a pair of socks! That's right, I finished something else. Me. It was a pair of socks that Angie and I were making for our friend Barrett. He's our friend, so we thought it was appropriate if we each made one sock. Well, then I got to the heel first and I couldn't stand it, so Angie did the heel and the rest of that sock, and I did the rest of the other sock. That was in August... I just finished the rest of sock number 2 lol. We had different gauges, so I had to use a 1.5 and she used a 1.

He has HUGE feet... ok so they're only like an inch or so longer than mine but still, sheesh. It felt like I was knitting forever. (Why no, my ends are not woven in yet. Why do you ask? lol). The yarn is Trekking XXL, color 184. I love the color, it's perfect for him. For some reason though, every time I worked on these I felt sick to my stomach... not really sure what that's about lol. Here's a close up of the stitch pattern.

It's hard to see, but it's 3 rows of k2p1 rib, and then one row is purled across (not on the bottom of the foot, of course).

I had to cast on for something different, I had to. I did finish two of the three things I wanted finished, so yay me! The problem was that the last two projects, those socks and Angie's scarf (see the posts a few days ago) were both basically k2p1 across. I can only take so much of that, ya know? So I cast on the second sock of a pair that Angie started and didn't like, so she gave me the finished first one and said I could make the second. :) Should be fun. I'll take pics as it progresses.
