FK: A Very Quick Pair of Socks

I finished these socks in two weeks. Yes! Two weeks. That's amazing! One sock a week! I've been diggin' the plain stockinette stitch. Although I think I'm just about ready to go back to my shawl now. These are for my youngest bro-in-law, who has been waiting very patiently for his socks. Now he will have them for when it gets cold.

 (Sorry for the crap picture - it's hard to photograph one's own feet. And yes, that is our retarded cat trying to attack my foot.)
Pattern: No pattern, just plain toe up socks

Yarn: Knit Pick's Essential (which is now Stroll) in "Ash" - 2 balls (I started a new ball for each sock as to not have to join ends in the middle. I used about 2/3 of each.)

Needles: Body - US 2/2.75mm Knit Picks Harmony wood
Ribbing - US 0/2mm Susan Bates aluminum

YTD Mileage: Weighing in at 77 grams that gave me approximately 356 yards, these bring my new total to 3.19 miles!

I think that makes the picture cuter with a cat attacking your foot. Nice socks by the way, I bet P. is looking forward to the socks. They look nice.

Nice sock! And the attacking cat adds human interest. :-)
