Slither Socks

I can't believe it's March, and I've got a Christmas gift knit already! These are plain old 60st vanilla socks on 2.5mm needles, started March 19, finished the 27th. The yarn is Dyeabolical in the slither colorway. I had hoped that they were going to look similar to these, they were going to be for me. However, I decided that since they weren't exactly what I thought they would be I'd keep them for the Oldest One for Christmas. Green is his favorite color, and the weather is starting to warm up, so he doesn't really need any more hand knit socks at the moment. Ravelry details here. The photo taken inside is the closest to the true color. I have enough leftovers that I started a small child's pair for charity. I'm going to soak them together, the yarn turned my bamboo needles greenish.

I think these made pair #25 for the 52PPiii. I'm obviously not going to make it to 52 pairs since it ends May 31. (An extra month -- I thought it ended on May 1.) I did the first 52PP and ended up knitting 29 pairs, I believe. I'll be happy if I can crank out 30 pairs, just so I can say I did better than my first time around!
Happy knitting!

Love the colours in that yarn! A shame about your needles, though, hopefully that will wear off.

I'm guessing Darren will be very happy with these socks!
