These are currently my favorite socks ever! They knit up really quick - I did the legs of each first and I really think that helped! The pattern (found on knitty.com) is great - I used Fleece Artist Basic Merino yarn in the "Rainforest" colorway - love it!! I also did them on two circulars, which for me really is fast fast fast!
Plus it helps that on Friday I didn't have school because it was too cold! So, I finished them up on Friday and wore them out on Friday night.
I knit. A lot. I like to make functional things and silly things, and frequently put these items on my mini-dachshund. When I am not knitting or crocheting I am thinking about these things for my clients, as I am an account manager doing social media marketing for yarn companies, yarn shops and designers. It is a great job that I enjoy and I feel incredibly lucky to have. I am able to work from home and enjoy my two children.
