sockapalooza 4 socks finished...

its a relief, sockapalooza 4 socks are done.

specs: spunky eclectic maine sock yarn in a pretty green varigated. purchased at 2007 SPA weekend in Portland Maine.

started Late May 2007 - Finished June 17, 2007. I used size 2.75 / 3.0 needles and followed the Monkey Socks pattern as written. My pal has size 11 shoes, and I knew I needed to make the socks a bit larger than the patterns gauge. I used the Maine Sock yarn (bit heavier than sock weight and larger needle and got the size I wanted. They are just a bit big for me, but should be perfect for my pal. Hope I am right.

Now, on to more knitting - or actually box filling. I am behind on two swaps, my swap-mates know I am behind, but I need to finish to get them done. So on to the box filling...

Wow, thanks for the socks - they fit my ginormous feet perfectly! =]
I'm a long-time ogler of Spunky Eclectic yarns, but had never tried them. Thanks for such a thoughtful gift, and for spoiling me with such a big box of surprises!
