My finishing binge is going so well, that I realized while I was preparing this post that I actually have TWO finished projects to show you. So I’ll show off socks today, and owe you a raincheck on the other one. ;-) I’m incredibly pleased with my finished Bellatrix Socks, despite the fact that I was moderately frustrated with the knitting. The finished pair is well worth the work, though… just look how neat they look!

This is one of those great yarn-to-pattern match ups… the skinny striping of the Duet Skinny sock yarn really sets off the drop stitch pattern! Just look at the way those bright green squiggles “pop” out. I can’t really blame the nice yarn or the fun pattern for my sluggish, uninspired knitting on this project… something just didn’t click with with me and this pair. But whatever the problem was, it’s all gone now the the socks are done! They look and feel wonderful, AND this was the last of my unfinished pairs of socks… so I’m all caught up with my second sock knitting!

I decided to take a break from showing off my favorite Puma high tops… these mary janes are from Earth Shoes.
