Sockapalooza Finito

070531-01
Well, obsession can sometimes be a good thing. :-)

After finishing the first sock for my Sockapalooza pal I was going to give socks a rest for a few days and work on some other knitting.

The sock had a different idea.

It called to me. Cajoled. Whispered. Pleaded. Downright demanded that it be started immediately.

So Monday afternoon I cast on. Wednesday morning I cast off. The socks have had a bath, done their photo shoot and now need to sit around waiting for almost two months before being packed off abroad. Yes, my socks will be off on an international adventure come the middle of July. I also have plenty of time to think about what else to put in my pal's parcel!

Oooops! Forgot the nerdy bit!
