of course, now i'm thinking because i already won one medal, that i can medal again ! so, i cast on another pair of socks. now, if i don't finish these in time to qualify for ravelympic events, they will still count for my ska february cast on, as it's an underappreciated pattern (meaning, there are fewer than 15 projects on ravelry).
and how this can be underappreciated is beyond me ...
this pattern is called "coin toss" ... this one is not a freebie, but is worth the money, by the designer sara peterson (aka knottygnome).
it's just pretty. i put it in my queue a good while back, and don't remember where i first saw it, as there's only a few knitted versions of it.
i am using some yarn i ordered from the loopy ewe ... cherry tree hill's supersock select semi-solid, in colorway rosewood. for a semi-solid, it does have quite a wide gradiation, but it is all the same hue. and the yarn is delicious.
i cast on yesterday, and am now on the foot section (gusset complete!). i'd love to finish today, but i doubt that will happen as there are other things i need or want to do today.
my goal is to finish the pair by the end of the olympics. it could happen. might. might not. doesn't matter. i will finish these ....
