One Down and Link Time

Hi Knitters,
This will be my last installment in my sock saga for awhile. I have to get on with my real knitting for a bit as there is so much to get done coming up here. My sock is inspired from these beautiful socks.
I love how this has turned out. The toe for the next sock will sport the two shades of green.
The toe I finished up early this morning.
The colors are the best. I used Spud & Chloƫ Fine in the following colorways going down the sock:
Shitake (main color)
Bumble Bee
Glow Worm

I've had quite a few people ask for the colors so there you go!
I can't wait to get the other one done so I have a new pair of handknit socks. My handknit sock drawer is getting thinner by the day. Especially since TC discovered handknit socks are perfect to wear inside her ice skates. Trouble.

Here are some fun links for you today to start the week:
I love Hannah Fettig so much! She's a knitting star. I'd love to knit everything she designs.
I want to make this and this from the new knitty.
Oh, and I love this hat from knitty, too.

That's enough for now. I have caught the most miserable cold. I can't stand to be around myself for all of the hacking and blowing going on. I hope you are all faring much better than me this week.
best, susie
