Finished Socks!

I've finished my Cosmic Honey Badgers!  This was a great pattern - mostly stockinette, but an occasional round of pattern.  The yarn was great too.  Unless I get any surprises when I wear them, I'll definitely be using Madelinetosh Twist Light again.  I also think this was a good pattern for the speckled yarns they produce.  I will always love Madelinetosh's tonal solids (like Ink and Carnation) and their subtle multicolors (like Cove and Grenadine), but the speckled yarns like this Cosmic Wonder Dust are fun for simple socks.

I think this is the first time in several years that I've knit a complete pair of socks in four days, so it's nice to know I can still do that (you know, if I had to, in an emergency or something).

Cute socks!
Funny thing - I have a list of bookmarked blogs that I read on my lunch break; yours is listed right above the Yarn Harlot and when I saw the post where you started these socks I thought I had clicked on the YH and was taken aback by the colors because they are very un-harlot (but very Pink Lemon!). Was an amusing little brain jog as I tried to wrap my head around the YH knitting this pastel-confetti sock yarn. lol.
Anyway, they are super fun. As much as I like heavily patterned socks, I find the plain SS ones get worn more often because they tend to be more comfy in shoes.
