FO: Business Casual

Hello everyone!

Last night, I finished my Business Casual.  The end date of the KAL is March 25th (Monday).  I made it!  It's been a very good KAL organized by Celtic Cast On.  115 knitters were in.  Many knitted more than one pair.  Go to this blog to see a parade of beautiful FOs!  To this day, there are at least 60 pairs completed!

When I started the pattern, I thought it would be a tough pattern.  So many crossed stitches :(  Thankfully, someone on Ravelry posted an alternate method without a cable needle.  So much easier!

Then, I struggled with the first sock.  Started over three times! 

And, I wanted to also knit the Saroyan and the due date was end of March as well!  I don't know why I do it to myself: deadlines :)

Here is my finished pair:

Yarn: Tempted Hand Painted Sly Grrl.
Needles: US 2 / 3.0 mm (circular and DPNs).
Color: Dreamy.
Start to finish: February 2013 - March 2013.
For: Me.
Notes: No modification.
It is a great pattern!  I really recommend it!  They are very wearable and I think that they are awesome for both men and women.

In the end, I made it. After this post, I will take a few pictures of the Saroyan because I'm handing it in to the lady who produces the beautiful alpaca yarn tonight. More details in a later post!

Have a pleasant weekend!

That look great! And that really is a lot of twisted stitches.

60 pairs of socks! Woah! That makes me wonder how many socks are finished a month in the Ravelry universe as a whole! Your socks are very lovely, I'm sure they will serve you very well.
