Too hot for wool (blend) socks

Just finished these this morning...had to turn on the air conditioning and eat a bowl of ice cream just to get the pictures taken ;)

Pattern--7 stitches per inch pattern from Getting Started Knitting Socks

Yarn: Lion Brand Magic Stripes (thanks to Nancy for letting me buy it off her ;))

Started on May 16th, finished July 26th

Best part: I finally learned a better way to pick up stitches...I held off looking into it for so long, decided on the second sock that I was going to see if I couldn't find a tutorial on the internet, found one--and learned the mystery of picking up stitches in about 30 makes sooo much more sense and looks better than what I've been doing for the past three years

Those are some hawt socks, har har!

I'd say just about anything calls for a/c and ice cream!

Ah. Poor you. Had to eat ice cream. Ha ha ha.

I just finished my Hedera! Since they are made out of corn fibre they are actually quite comfortable.

hehe...well I probably would've eaten the ice cream anyway ;)

I may have to try some different fibers next...(well...maybe after I get through the 4-5 skeins of sock yarn I already have ;) )
