Sock Madness

A little while back I signed up for Sock Madness - an aptly named group if there ever was one. You can learn all about it at . The first pattern was distributed to the contestants last Saturday (3/10). When it was time for me to leave for my freeform class at The Knitter's Cottage I checked the flickr group to see if anyone was posting and discovered that a number of people were already on their second sock! So much for feeling good about being at the heel on my first sock. When my division closed on Monday I slowed down, but did finish them this week.
