Sunglasses at the ready please...

Well, what do you think? How can this ridiculous sock not make you smile? I only cast it on on Saturday afternoon and here we are on Monday morning and it's done!!!!! I love this sock so much for every reason - the colours, the pattern, the yarn (pretty much all of it Posh except for the Colinette heel), the thickness, the speed it knitted up... I have already cast on for its partner - no second sock syndrome for thick socks. Oh I think I always want to make thick socks from now on - even my children like them - and for a 16 year old boy that's quite some admission!

Cast on 48 stitches, 3.5mm needles, with 2 skeins of sock yarn, change one colour every 10 rows - easy peasy and wonderful! Pattern is here.

Perhaps this is where I am going wrong? I need to work only in thick sock wool from now on.

It's gorgeous. I bet you won't hang around finishing off its pair.

That sounds agreat idea.it uses up the stash and produces quicker knit socks.No contest.I will be trying that as soon as I have finished my crochet blanket pieces for this month.

Oooh, fantastic! I just finished a cardie for my smaller girl today - she's thrilled and so am I. I never thought I'd get it done - and in less than a month too!
