Trekking XXL Socks

Yarn: Trekking XXL sock, ?? colorway
Pattern: 2x2 rib cuff, short row heel, traditional toe
Comments: This sock is a long time coming. I bought the yarn probably 3 or 4 years ago. Started it when we first opened the shop. Had a falling out with socks shortly thereafter and threw the first half completed sock in my stash drawer. I started it again after finishing all of my UFO's and felt guilty that the sock was languishing in my drawer. I actually kinda sorta enjoyed working on it. Maybe I'll give socks another chance.

Self striping yarn is enough to make anyone give socks a chance =) Those are awesome.

I know how you feel - I LOVE sock yarn but don't really like knitting socks. (remember that pink yarn/thread I left last year for the girls!!?) Thank goodness it pretty much sells itself...have you guys signed up for the Sox Outside the Box program with Skacel? They told me I was first and therefore only one in Austin but I can't really see them turning down HCW. we'll see - got to meet the Noro/Debbie Bliss guy yesterday. Hmmmmmmmmm.
