So I'm a total dork, a habitual procrastinator and completely unable to turn down a dare. The combintation of these personality traits was was a pair of socks knit while I was supposed to be studying for mid-terms for the Twilight movie premire this weekend.

They are actually even, I'm just a terrible photographer

The sock on the right says I <3 edward. Here's a better picture of the words

They were a total hit! I was taking my boots off all night when my friends kept telling people about my socks. It was rather funny.

Yarn: Elann.com Sock it to Me 4 ply. Two balls of Black, one of Brick. 75% superwash wool, 25% nylon.
Needles: Size 2.5 (3mm) 100cm addi lace using the magic loop method, which I highly reccomend! I knit the pair in almost half the time it normally takes me with DPNs.

Mods: Two up with a short row heel. 2x2 ribbing on the cuff instead of 1x1, with a sewn bind off. I also added a few extra rows so they would fit my feet properly, so I had to repeat a few rows of the chart at the top.


I craft so I can avoid reality.....

Those socks are like, the coolest thing I've ever seen! I'm totally jealous of your knitting skills, the Eclipse ribbon is perfect, and I too love Edward! Awesome job! Grin

Oh yeah, these *rock*!!!

Those socks are awesome!
I've never knit socks before, but I'm suddenly feeling a strange compulsion to do so!

Those are amazing.  I wish I could do anything close to that.  Plus I love Twilight!
