Ok, so apparently I’m not the only one who likes these.  You seem smitten too.  The Boy was home this morning, so I pressed him into service as foot double so I could grab a quick snap (I mention this so you know those are his furry legs, not mine).

_DSC9016You can see I finished the leg, the heel flap, and the first few rounds of the gusset, all in the space of two days.  This is unheard of.  I’m giving credit to the ridiculously fat yarn (String Theory Caper Aran in Melon) and the low stitch count (a mere 44 stitches around).

_DSC9017But some credit must also go to that stitch pattern.  It’s ridiculously fast, and easy enough that I could do it while watching the mid-season finale of The Walking Dead (ie, I could do it without actually looking very much at all).

I’m calling it a win for simple socks.  Good sense dictates I put them away for today (too much knitting in a short time is murder on my arms), but I think I’m quite committed to these now and I can’t imagine not finishing them.
