This is my first "sharing" post. I am usually busy commenting on other knitter's knits. I finally am getting up the nerve to share. The above pictured socks are my Knitting Olympics Knee Socks. I finished them yesterday, ahead of schedule.  Cheesy The Specs on the socks: the pattern is my own. I used 3 skeins of LB Wool Ease (2 skeins Blue Mist, 1 skein Blue Heather) and # US 4 dpn's. I think they turned out pretty good. The socks are warm and perfect for cold days when a girl just HAS to wear a skirt.

To read more and see an extra picture of the socks, visit my weblog.

Thanks for looking.
Love Rilana (a.k.a. ISIS)

Does wool-ease have enough wickability for socks? If so..   *eyes stash* I might not be far behind you!
