Trekking XXL #36 are done!

Ya’! These are fast socks. Now you see them now they are done! This morning, before they were finished, they slithered out of the bag, so fast, I could barley catch them, trying to run up a path and then they ran to climb some rocks.
Here the first one is finished. Can you tell me whom does the sculpture depict? (NYC knitters disqualified…)And here both are done and they are chillin’ in Central Park’s Ramble. Ya' baby, this is NYC!Trekking XXL #36
This is a more accurate color. this sock photographs differently in different lights.
Started June 1 finished June 16
US1 2 at once on 2 circs
Pattern: K6, P2
Square heel, regular toe (dec every other row on both ends of both needles).
Note my two different heels. One stagers the slipped stitches, the other stacks them. Both are good. One is more whimsical, (the staggered).
I love the different ways this yarn knit up, in the pattern, the heels, and the stockinet.

Over all, a great trek!

Oh yeah! Those clogs with the holes cut out - fab! They look niver than mine for the summer.

Love your socks but are they quite shocking pink or wine red? They look different in each set of photos.

You are some kind of nutta, are you, when it comes to sprinklers? I can just see you as the Crazy Sock Woman - you may just catch a glimpse of her bright handknitted socks as she flits across your garden in the sunlight, through the sprinkle shower.........

In case you think "niver" is some weird English adjective, it's not. I meant "nicer". Oh well......

Great socks! It's always interesting to see what the colours do on the different parts. These behaved beautifully!

I've come via Trek along with me - love the pics, I've never seen any of Central Park before. Can't believe how big it is!

Great job! they look like you need the on a leash, so they don't disappear? I'm sure a lot of people would be willing to "take care of them". THey just look nifty". Hurra is the swedish word.

Well done! I love the color, and thanks for the fun trek in CP, a place I'd love to visit (so far I've only been there via Law and Order).

Those are beautiful - glad you enjoy the crocs - I've been thinking about them but the sizing doesn't seem right (and I do like my birks - so there - fyi got a new pair of comfy sandals = brand is NAOT and they seem really nice) my first skein of trekking arrived - in blues. Yours are very nice what a fun photo session

Your socks look great and so does Central Park! I like the colourway.

Nice rock-climbing socks. My
Trekking 100 socks were too hot in NO to run around. They relaxed on tables in their bag mostly.
