Sock Put - Gold!

Originally uploaded by ShelbyD
Just finished these Spring Forward socks, my third pair for the 2008 Ravelympics. This yarn is Kraemer Jeannie that I dyed earlier this year.

Time for a victory lap! Or bed. Probably bed.

Sock Put - Silver

Grandiflora socks in Knit Picks Bare that I dyed earlier this year. Not the best photo, but still - finished! My gold medal pair was cast on immediately afterwards. Two Spring Forward socks stand between me and the Ravelympic finish line, but I'm confident that I'll make some good progress over the weekend.

Sock Put - Bronze

Originally uploaded by ShelbyD
My first pair of socks for the Ravelympic sock put was a pair of Thuja socks for my husband. Started on 8/8 and finished on 8/10. These were nice and quick due to the sixe 7 needles and worsted weight yarn.

Since I have three pairs planned, I've decided to score myself as follows: One pair - Bronze, Two pairs - SIlver, Three pairs - Gold

I am one sock into my second pair, Grandiflora, which is going slower since I'm down to size 1 needles and fingering yarn.
