So slow, but still kicking!

Wow, I am SO far behind! Here's my first pair for the plunge.

And a semi-decent shot of the pattern details.

Pattern: Zombie Socks from Emm1e on Ravelry.
Needles: Size 2 circ, worked Magic Loop
Yarn: Blue Moon Fiber Arts STR lightweight in Rook-y
Mods: Did 2 extra pattern repeats on cuff, and added a few repeats to heel flap

I'm finding it vary difficult to stay on top of my socks these days, but hopefully I'll be able to work out a better rhythm. Having limited time, size 11 feet, and having other projects with deadlines don't always make for quick progress. I've been so inspired by all of your socks and have found a few patterns that I *must* make, so I'm enjoying myself none the less.

Happy knitting to all and keep up the great work!

Your socks are beautiful! I love the subtle colors. I also have substantial size 11 feet. It takes a little longer to finish a pair for us.....more time to savor the experience!

These socks are beautiful! the color works wonderfully with the pattern and they are knitted beautifully.

I have size 9 -10 feet so socks for me are an epic esp as I usually knit an 8 in leg (or longer).

I just finished baby socks, and wow did they knit up quickly!

Again, beautiful socks, I look forward to seeing your next pair.
