I finished The Socks That Shall Not Be Named!!!

See what happens when I'm stressed out and need a way to distract myself? It's no wonder I left all my papers and final projects in school until the day before they were due.

Stats: Knit Picks Essential Sock Yarn
Pattern: Mock Cable Rib (I thought it looked like snake skin)
Time: Well I started the sock on the right in February, but ignored it for months (obviously) because I was sick of the pattern. I picked it up today, finished off the toe, then did the ENTIRE right sock today as well while I was listening to a book on tape.

Heee! I have Slytherin Socks!!

*Edit* The book I was listening to was Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

They look really cool - I've wondered about doing socks like that (negative images of each other) - it's a great effect.

Oh, isn't Jim Dale a great reader?! I love listening to the HP books...

I love the HP books on CD! That guy rocks!
The socks look great. Good job!

I do hope that you were listening to the Stephen Fry reading of the HP books.

To us English, Jim Dale just massacres them.

Yay for the mother tongue.

Excuse me whilst I search for my medication.
