I'm procrastinating from doing things I should be doing (like, oh, you know, lesson planning, working on my resume, applying for jobs, figuring out my taxes, cleaning, going for a walk, etc.), but thought I'd post some pics of my Myrtle Socks.
I bought the yarn at Wal*Mart in Myrtle Beach, it's Bernat Baby Jaquards yarn in the colour "Boo Berries". I'd always wanted to try a self-striping yarn, and this was a real cheapo. I made up the pattern, using size 3 needles. Checking Ravelry there are a few others who've made socks with the same yarn in various colourways. I had thought about making another pair with the yarn I still have left, for a Christmas present, but I think I'll wait a bit as I'm wondering how they'll hold up to regular wear.
And, in case you were wondering, oh yeah, it's totally cool to knit socks while you're on vacation.
