Another FO: Socks

Steve's Socks were finished last night. Ends woven in and everything! I hope they fit him well...

finished socks!

Pattern: Basic toe-up sock (64 stitches, figure 8 toe, and a short-row heel)
Fiber: Regia Bamboo Color (in the creatively named color "1063")
Ravelry link: Steve's Blue Socks

Not much to say about this standard pattern of mine. It is the only thing (besides a scarf) that I can knit without needing notes or a pattern. The fabric is lovely, the bamboo giving just a bit of shine and smoothness. They drape well enough to wear as sort of "fancy socks" but the marled texture may be too rustic... Anyway, they should keep his feet warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

So far the Ravelympics have been good encouragement... but there is still that damn blanket out there! How many days do I have left?
