They are already being put to good use!

All this goofy weather lately has got my head spinning... headache, no headache, headache, no headache. Sometimes I want to do stuff and sometimes I don't. Motivation has not been constant around here. But I'm finding that working on both socks at once on two different sets of dpns is helping move things along faster. I now have another fun pair of socks to wrap my tootsies in hand knitted loveliness. This are Claudia Handpainted in colorway Purple Earth and I love the colors! Although they totally didn't turn out the way that I thought they would. Using the Charade pattern had the yarn striping in a strange way.I did end up with a little hole in the first row of the gusset, but really with shoes on you can't even tell. (too bad you can tell in this picture.) I must have started at two different ends with the two skeins cuz the colors pulled in a slightly different pattern and places but honestly I love it. I think these will be my artsy-fartsy socks. And last night I broke down and made myself yet another pair of fun sock blockers. Who couldn't use a little flower power right about now?
