Finished and Headed to.....Africa!

The second sock is DONE, hurrah! Catherine stopped over the other evening, so I asked her if she wanted them. She did and will wear them on the plane as she heads off again to Africa. You can read about her work here as it's quite an interesting endeavor. (She's the gal in the plain red shirt.)
Pansy Socks at last!
I was attracted to the name of this yarn (Knitpicks) first as I LOVE pansies, and then I realized that it's the UW colors (Washington not Wisconsin!). For some reason the two socks appear to be different sizes; I think one is a bit stretched from trying on? Normally I can match up multi-colored yarn better than I did here, but oh well, they are done and seemingly appreciated! Now on to another ancient UFO.....

Hey Judy! Nothing better than a toasty warm pair of socks to keep the toesies warm!! So ... do I need to pop another finish on your list?? That's two each for us both - I finished a wall hanging today, but haven't posted a photo yet - tomorrow! Hope you're keeping warm and enjoying tackling your WISP's! Bear Hugs! KRIS

Coincidentally, those are also the colors for the UW+University of Wahington.

Great socks. They match the witch hazel flowers in your header.

Your hat and booties are precious in the last post.
