Done!

Done! I can wear them tonight for the Bobmas night...........
I really enjoyed working with this yarn! I can't wait to CO for something else soon. (suggestions?)
The pattern is fun too! Burning Rings of Fire by Kirsten Kapur. I did not continue the rib on the foot part for two reasons. I wanted to see how the yarn knits in stockinette (love it) and I usually prefer a plain sock in my shoe.

Burning Rings of Fire

To celebrate the purchase of more Crown Mountain Farms Sock Hop yarn-
I have been knitting these.

Nice knit, for the mindless TV hours. The colors keep you mesmerized, and its a lovely hand spun yarn, but I am noticing that one skein is spun thinner. The skeins were different. I got 2 skeins, one was 60g and one was 78g. I have no way to measure yardage, which might be the same. So far they are both keeping up beautifully. Can't wait to finish them and wear them. This is very special yarn. I hope they'll be ready for next week's Bobmas Eve party (April 10th). There will be celebratory gatherings in many cities. The New York City Ravelry Meetup will be at The Seamen’s Church Instiute,
