Holy Snowflakes, Batman!

<== FO!

I finished the Snowflake Socks about two hours ago after a marathon 8-hour knitting frenzy today. My right hand looks like a claw. My shoulders hurt. My back aches. My eyes are blurry. But I am triumphant!

Does "triumphant" sound a little over the top to you? Maybe it does. But believe me when you accomplish something you never thought you could, completion feels like it should be celebrated with a marching band and a parade! How about a knitter's float for next year's Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade? A whole band of knitters and their WIPs waving Lantern Moons and Addi Turbos at the cheering throng lining Broadway to greet them.


And is it me or do you find the inside of the socks even more interesting than the outside? I just might wear them inside out.

OMG--These are SOOOOO wonderful Barbara!! Looks like a difficult project! I'm so envious because I LOVE knitting socks, do it all the time, but haven't tried a Fair Isle project like this one. You've inspired me to give it a go first thing in the new year! (Must finish Christmas gifts first!)

Wow, wow, wow, Barbara. Those are some beautiful socks. Pat yourself on the back!

I've been knitting scarves - had to set my sweater aside and sort of ease back into knitting.
