Rock n weave!

Took me long enough to finish these, huh? Well, they're done now and I love them! Not quite in time to wear with my planned outfit of a cute skirt and black Mary Janes, but perfect for walking on hardwood floors in these chilly temps.
Down to the knitty gritty:
Pattern. Rock 'n Weave Socks by A. Karen Alfke
Pattern Source. BMFA Rockin' Socks Club. Now available here.
Yarn. Socks that Rock, Medium Weight in Fairgrounds - May Sock Kit.
Needles. Size 1, 2, and 5 Addi Turbos.
Buttons. Some shiny silver ones from Joanns. They look a lot like the ones in the pattern pic.
Duration. 4-eva! In reality, some time in early June to 10/20/06. Almost five months for a pair of socks? Sad.
Mods. None
Thoughts. Love the socks, love the pattern. The pattern shakes up the sock pattern both with it's construction of the ankle flap, the use of buttons, and just the overall look. I dig it.

Those are neat! I've seen them on a few other blogs and have though how different the cuff looks - and you don't see buttons too often on socks!

Ohhh - these socks are super-amazing, I absolutely love them! What a great pattern this is, and the colorline you've been using is smashing too! Great job!
