Sockless

I feel strange.

I currently have no socks on the needles. I cast off my lastest sock design Friday night, and haven't cast on for anything new. I'm trying to refrain from doing so - I have several other WIPs I'd like to clear out - one with a definite deadline - but I've got the itches to make some sock stitches.

To distract myself, I'll show you the latest finished pair.
 This is Elm Street - A pretty leaf lace panel flanked by ribs and twisted stitches.
And of course, the pattern is echoed on the back of the sock. Better pictures will come when I get a chance to get Mom to help me take some. These were knit in Barn Cat in Magical Mystery Tour. I'd love to knit another pair in a more solid colour too. I am in need of test knitters, so if anyone is interested, leave me a comment with the best way to contact you.

Looking forward to testing these; last twisted stitch sock pattern I tried didn't work out due to incorrect yarn choice (handspun). This time I've got your yarn so should be good; it will be my 4th pair of socks on the needles for me.
