Wendy's Birthday Socks

Wendy (MIL) loves pink but she can not wear wool (I know, totally sad, isn't it?!). I found this really cute pink in Crystal Palace's Panda Cotton (it's 55% bamboo, 24% cotton, and 21% elastic nylon). I think that she will look fabulous in the color. I'm using Evelyn A. Clark's Go With The Flow pattern from Ann Budd's "Favorite Socks." The pattern is taking me a while to do, even though I've finally memorized it. I don't know if it's me, the yarn, the needles, or what but I feel like it takes forever to do the leg pattern. Oh well, it's probalby just me. I've decided to make them just a little bit shorter than what the pattern calls for since the yarn that I'm using has just a little less yardage (and it will shave off some time, too :). Anyway, I'm off to do some more rows - I just have a little over a week to do two of them. Yeay!

Update: Dang it! They've been frogged. :( Well, I decided not long after taking this pic and posting this post that I should check them for fit. Unfortunately, after trying to get them on my foot, I realized that they are just going to be too tight. Wendy and I are the same size so I don't think that I should just count on them fitting her. So, on to the next pattern...

Hi - I came over from Blue Blog. Those socks look great in the pink Panda Cotton. Since I have that color & skinny ankles & feet, maybe I'll try those for myself (I also have red & white & the socks I just finished are in the Strawberries & Lime variegated which is yummy). I love the Panda Cotton's feel & slight sheen from the bamboo but its' splittiness was annoying.
