Pal socks, STR yarn... socks!

The pal socks are done. My first real socks on size 0 needles. One is a bit wider than the other because my gauge changed from sock to sock, but I'm sending them unblocked for ease of size adjustment.


Here's another shot. Jespere, I hope they fit!


And now, a picture of the Socks that Rock club yarn. I'm so excited. Look at those colors! It isn't something I would have picked out for myself, but now that I'm actually holding the yarn in my hands, I love the colors. It's soft and luscious and we'll see how it knits up.

Good job!

As someone who has not ventured into negative needle sizing yet, I say "Brava!"

These socks are so beautiful, I'm totally in love with the colours - and the same goes for your new yarn - I can't wait to see the socks you're going to knit with it!

Very pretty socks! They contributed to my crazy, insatiable sock-knitting urge, I'll have you know!

Those colours look lovely together.

The socks look great, they must have been a killer t make on such tiny needles.

Great job on the socks! So I guess it's true - if you knit faster, you don't run out of yarn, right? ;)

Those came out wonderfully! Your sock pal should be thrilled.

And isn't Monsoon a great colorway? Good luck w/the pattern if you choose to do it.
