Sock Knitters' Pentathlon is a contest that has brought together knitters from around the world to knit 5 pairs of socks, a sock every 2 months. The fastest to post pictures of WIPS & FO's win. Easy enough. I really wasn't eager to try to place because I figured it would be impossible. But I was really blown away by the fact that the first knitter had a finished pair of socks in something like 9 or 10 hours after the pattern was posted. Truly amazing!
This is my sock in progress. The pattern is called Jacobean; it is knitted toe up with a Magic Cast on. I had never tried that before but found it easy and fun. In case you're wondering those ARE 2 circs in the picture. Who would've thunk it? I know. The yarn is Panda Silk. Let me say these Panda Silk socks are going to be possibly my most luxurious feeling socks ever. They feel dressy and expensive (but they're not!).
Overall I think this will make a very sharp sock. I'm sure I'll have mine done sometime in the allotted 2 months!
