Well, here it is, my new, long term relationship. This is the beginning of my sock yarn remnant blanket. As you can see, I'm not very far into it & I already need to get some more yarn. No, I haven't used all the leftovers that I have, but I still need to get my sock friends to trade with me. You can see more pictures of it on Ravelry. Luckily, I'm doing Sock Madness again, so that will help me get some leftovers added. I can't wait to see how this shapes up. So far, I think I'm going to love it when it's all done.

Well it's year 2 of the Madness & I decided to give it another try. This is the pattern for round 1...Zombies. I like how they look now that they're done, but man, this pair of socks almost killed me to finish. By the time I was done, I felt like a Zombie. Not only that, but the socks don't even fit me so now I need to figure out what to do. I don't know anyone else that will wear lime green socks, so I'll probably end up frogging them to be made into something I can & will wear. I have to admit, I really like how they turned out with the multi-color toes. I'll definitely do that with whatever I make these into. Maybe lime green Thelonius with multi colored toes.
By the way, no the dog isn't eating the socks. =) I just took the photo at a weird angle. Now it's just a waiting game to see how long this first round will take. My money's on the next round starting late next week.
