Olympic Socks

That's right.  I did it.  17 days, 2 new techniques, a new pair of socks!  The 2 at a time sock thing is pretty nifty, because it does eliminate the dreaded second sock syndrome, but I did miss my DPNs from time to time.  And as I said in a previous post, initially I loathed the afterthought heel for making me pick up so many freaking stitches, but it does look cool.  For some reason, the top of these socks came out longer than the bottom, but that just makes them look good from the top.  All in all, I'm happy with them.
