What's Yer Hurry?

At long last, here is the picture of my Knitting Olympics 2006 socks - which were indeed completed within the timeframe of the Olympics. Be sure to click on the pic for a larger version.

Yarn used: KnitPicks Color Your Own fingering weight wool, plus some really old red wool from my stash. Size 1 bamboo dpns got the job done for me.

For dyeing, I used both Kool-Aid and Wilton's Icing Color. I have to say I was a little disappointed in the Wilton's - I had anticipated much brighter colors than I actually got. And the black? Well, it's brown. The red? Salmon pink. (That's why I dug into the stash closet for red)

There's nothing written down for these socks, I just made up the designs as I went along. It really was a lot of fun, and not nearly as difficult as I had thought. Yay for the Olympics!
