Zwei Bayerische Socke

Donni and I have been having an unofficial little knit-along (mutual encouragement arrangement) for Eunny Jang's Bayerische Sock pattern which first appeared late last year. Donni's pair were finished last week. Last night, I finished mine.
Bayerische Socks completed

A few project stats:
Begun: 5 May 2007
Finished: 13 August 2007 (wow.... three months for a pair of socks....)
Yarn: TOFUtsies by South West Trading Company (wonderful stuff, it's only drawback is the fine-ness means that 2mm needles are really a necessity to produce a nice firm fabric, but the results are definitely worth it)
Needles: 2mm dpns (Knit Picks)
Bayerische close up

Obligatory shoe fetish shot:

"So what's next?"
Sidewinder begins
"...the sidewinder sleeps, sleeps, sleeps in a coil..."

I'm going perpenSOCKular and trying out NonaKnits's Sidewinders.

They are THE best socks aren't they....

And sometimes I wonder how linked we are....I bought some Hundertwasser sock yarn 2 weeks ago to do a sidewinder....tell me what you think as you knit it.
