And speaking of socks

I finally kicked it into gear and finished up the Socks That Never End (rav link).  I'm totally blaming FO fumes from Tree Duo.

I don't know if I've ever mentioned this before, but I purposefully picked this pattern of socks because it was out of my comfort zone-you know, with all the purling.  I don't recommended it for those who feel feint as the thought of purling. 

I know that I have big feet.  I'm okay with that.  I've knitted up socks for my big feet before.  I wanted to end the pattern in a particular spot, so I ended up making these socks a touch too big.

All in all, I feel kinda 'Meh' about these socks.  I'm not real happy with them, but they don't have anything wrong with them either-other than the massive amounts of purling.  These socks have taken their toll on me and I may just take a brief sock sabbatical.
