Zombie Socks

One Zombie sock (ravelry pattern) finished! It is my first top-down-two-circs sock! I have also recently completed my grasshopper twist socks (also can be found on ravelry) but I call 'em my raspberry twist socks. They were my first toe up socks, ever, and I did those on two circs too! I'm not sure which I like better, dpn's or two-circs, but I like my addi circular needles better than my bamboo dpns - or metal dpns - so it looks like I'll be doing the circular thing for a while!

I love this pattern, I love the whole drop stitch thing! I like how it looks and I like the little thrill you get when you drop the stitch from the needle and pull! It feels so illegal!
Anyway, I'd show you all my Raspberry Twists but they are in my husband's truck. My socks end up in the strangest places. I hope everyone has a nice Memorial Day weekend. We are staying up north, but going to visit some friends who have a place up here so that will be nice. No stress about having to have my house clean or cooking, just enjoying some time with other grown-ups. The rest of the weekend I should probably work on the yard, but I wonder how hard it is to dig up weeds and knit at the same time? : )

That is the prettiest pattern. I love the waves. I can't knit a stitch but I'm working on my first pair of crocheted socks. I'll post progress on Ravelry. Have a great weekend!

Amy - cool, are you gonna use you berrocco comfort sock yarn? I'd like to make them again with something wooly myself.

I started the Zombies, using the Berocco Comfort Sox. We'll see what happens.

BTW - you've been tagged, see my blog for details. Don't be mad, it's a fun meme.
