Wow, those look great.

How long did they take to make?  How much yarn did they take?

thanks!
maizella: just make sure if you do make a pair that when you do your gauge swatch that you stretch your gauge a bit - if you do it right on the gauge it will end up looking like leggings (at least that's what happened to me) and I had to re-do it.
kjlutz thanks!  I bought a cone of yarn and it looks like they took just about/just over half of the cone.  I have no idea how much yarn that is.  As far as how long - actual knitting time maybe just under 2 weeks.  I started officially in the beginning of January and had several false starts (which I documented in the blog posts) - and would just have them sitting there and stare at them before starting up on them again.
