The flash took out a lot of the more subtle color tones there are some really amazing deep emerald greens in this colorway. I will have to take some more pictures in sunlight, if it will ever stop raining.

I beat second sock syndrome!
I finally finished my socks! I bought the amazing yarn for these socks at a price that I will not mention, but it was much higher than I normally pay for one skien of yarn. I blame yarn fumes and an antsy three year old for this slip. The colors were just too amazing to pass up. Then I did my red practice pair of socks. There was no way I wanted to mess up my amazing yarn. By the time I got my first sock in the pair done I had already knit the same pattern three times. I was just not feeling the socky love any more. But I pushed past it and finished last night. I even had enough left over that I am going to make an iPod Nano cozy. I have already cast on for a super fun pair of really stripey longies. I am also in a knit along for a felted bag, so stay tuned for some more exciting finished objects.
