1 sock, a pair of socks, more socks, socks, socks

I've been without internet for most of the day and finally at 8pm I have internet. There was another huge storm with high winds and heavy rain last night. That makes 4 in the last 7 days. Luckily we only had some branches off our two large oak trees in the back yard come down. Nothing of significance. Ok so sock, socks, socks.
I finished the 'Vog on's for my co-worker vicki here's a picture

Yarn 60% superwash merino wool, 30% bamboo, 10% nylon from Peacecat handrafts at
pattern: 'Vog on
needles: done on 2 addie lace circulars US size 2

Then, I decided to do something more foo foo like these.....

Pattern: Cross-Stitch block from More Sensational knitted socks
yarn: socks that rock in color Foo Foo
needles: 2 US size 2 crystal palace bamboo circulars

I ended up making a mistake that in the end I liked. I sliped the stitches as if to knit instead of as to purl. What it did is twist the crossed stitch instead and I really like the way it looks, so on I shall go.

The pictures only shoe two repeats done and I'm starting repeat 4

Don't you just love when a mistake becomes your own personal touch to a pattern. The yarn colours are fantastic and the pattern rocks.
