Knitting: wizard stripes socks.
Another pair of socks finished! I've been knitting these off and on since July...no hurry, just a few rows here and there amongst all of the craft fair knitting. I actually finished most of the second sock in the past week.
There's not much to say about them. They're plain vanilla socks made a bit more exciting because of the stripes. :) The yarn is Felici by KnitPicks, in the Wizard colorway, and even though the colors are a bit more pastel than I normally go for, they've grown on me. Felici is really affordable as far as self-striping yarn goes...I did notice that with this batch there were a lot of splotches, especially purple on the yellow-ish green sections. It's not a big deal (you can barely see it in the photos), but it does make the socks look a little dirty even though they haven't been worn yet.
