WOW a finish two Fridays in a row!! Don't hold your breath on this trend continuing! But here's hoping that I do have some more finishes to report.
Anyway, on to my finish! I signed up for Sock Madness this spring and amazed myself with how far I managed to get! I was knocked out in Round 5 with Zip. I put it aside for a while to work on other things (particularly Tour de Sock and vacation time) and got back to it recently. These socks were a bit of a challenge for me. Adding zippers in while knitting was a bit tricky and awkward for me, but I must admit to loving the finished project! The socks are quite nice and once the zipper was in the rest of the sock was a nice easy knit. The finishing touches took a bit more time than usual (to tuck in some extra ends and to attach the button). I also decided to use a bright zipper - why would I go to the trouble of knitting a zipper into my socks if they are not visible??! Am I right?
Here is a link to my Ravelry project page.

I am pleased to have these all done! To see more finished works please head on over to Tami's Amis.
