Oops?

Has it really been a month since I posted? Big Things are going on here, and I knew I was distracted (not just from blogging, but even from knitting) but I didn't realize it had been that long. I've still been peeking in at other people's blogs at least...
Anyway, the Autumn socks are done, finally.


As you can see, they ended up pooling a little, but with the way they're dyed it's not overwhelming, so I'm fine with it. I think, though, that they have a little bit of the Fleece Artist "two halves of the skein being noticeably darker or lighter" syndrome that I've seen others mention. The second sock, which is on the bottom in the picture, is definitely a bit darker than the first. That kept this pair from being the Best Socks Ever, but I still like them a lot.
The Congo socks are done too, but I'm holding them back in order to blackmail myself into posting again in a reasonable amount of time. I don't like being MIA from my own blog!

The socks look great! The pooling isn't obvious at all, I had to look closely for it. :)

Yes, you have been extremely remiss in not posting, but we forgive you. ;)

Those socks have turned out fantastic - the colour is lovely, and pooling isn't obviously, but works very well in that shade :) Which colourway is it again?

Wow, those are gorgeous socks and the pooling is pretty subtle. You've got me thinking orange as well and I never wear that color.

The socks looks fantastic! Don't worry, can hardly notice the pooling.
