Finishing Friday - One day late

Yesterday morning, my brand-new, super-duper laptop arrived . . . just as I was getting out of the shower. (Sorry Mr. Fed-Ex Man.) I spent all day getting it set up, and ran out of steam before I got my Finish or Frog post done.


But since I actually did finish something this week, I figured it would be okay to post it, even if it is a day late.


This week, I finally finished the socks I was knitting Pea for Christmas.

Log Cabin Socks from Handknit Holidays
Cast On: 12 December 2008
Completed: 22 January 2009
Yarn: Cascade 220 Superwash - Shire
Needles: Clover Bamboo US5 (3.75mm) DPNs

Pea loves his new socks (even if I couldn't get him to model them for the blog). He says they are soft and cushy, and very warm.


This is such a super speedy and fun pattern.  (No comment on why a super speedy present was gifted so late!!) Which is good, because my Log Cabin Socks are still in my WIP list. Look for those on a Friday soon!

very nice. I'm thinking about socks for my Dad, "He who has never paid a lick of attention to anything knitted". But...socks. Everyone wears 'em. We live in New England; they're as mandatory as underwear (sorry, Brittany. and Lindsey.). Surely he wouldn't scoff socks?? And these are manly, no?? I think you've convinced me!

Nice warm socks! I'm convinced that wool socks are the key to surviving winter.

Toasty socks -- you just can't beat them on a cold winter day. I'm glad your DH loves them!

New laptop, sweet!

Wow - Sounds like a banner day all around - new computer and a FO.

Love the bedspread, BTW.

What a lovely lovely pattern. You knit them up so well Karen. Great manly color. Pea is very lucky!

Gorgeous socks! I'm afraid to make socks for my dh. he'll ruin them in less than 1 wearing!

It's a christmas miracle! Very manly and very cozy and very much going into my Ravelry queue right now...

Yay for the new laptop! Love the socks! Perfect for the weather now I'm sure!

congrats on finishing the socks! I really like the finishing friday deal, and one day...one day real soon, I am going to jump on the bandwagon.

Where's KC? I thought for sure we'd be treated to new kitty pictures. Guess I'll have to look elsewhere for my fix.

ps, gorgeous socks ;)
