Fire sock, come walk with me!

Or maybe I should say, "Come hop with me," since I've only completed one sock so far.

After getting so much time to work on this sock while riding the MAX train and waiting at Powell's to hear Stephanie's talk, it was very close to being completed.

I was committed to bowling today in the State Games of Oregon final eliminations tournament. For some reason, I signed up for two squads, back-to-back, which meant I was at the bowling alley from around 12:30 until around 5:00. So the sock accompanied me, and when I wasn't bowling, I was knitting. By the end of the first three games, I had it finished and then did kitchener stitch on the toe while waiting for the next squad to start.

Knit in Public Day may have been yesterday, but my KIP was Friday and today! So here you have it, pictured from both sides so you can see how the colors barber-poled on the leg, striped on the heel, and then pooled in pretty swirls reminiscent of raspberry sherbert.

I sure hope it fits my Sockapalooza sock pal and that she likes the colors. I love how the pattern worked up (Waving Lace by Evelyn Clark). Now to finish its mate!

I like the pattern very much, it looks really good in your choice of color. I chose the same pattern for my sockpal :-)
