Round 4 Sock Madness

Round 4 of Sock Madness. The pattern was released at 7pm April 30th our time. Had to wait 3 hours for it to be released. That was a long 3 hours. I decided to use the oldest sock yarn I had. I purchased it on ebay before I knew what LYS were. Yes it is not pretty. But, if it did not get used soon I was going to have to kick it out of the house. Which may not have been a bad idea. But, I don't like to waste so..... Here is the start. Pattern is Lucky Diamond by Melissa Goodale.
For Sock Madness we have to have a progress picture and a final picture on an adult feet.
I finished these May 1. I never thought these socks would end. The seed/moss stitch seemed to go one forever. I was close to tears doing that stitch. I don't care to do it again for a while. OH and while I am at it I don't want to do an afterthought heel for a long long time.

When I finished them I went to take the "finished picture" and I had left my camera on from the start picture. I had to recharge the battery before I could take a picture. Thank Goodness a 3 minute charge got me a picture. This is the shot for the contest.
They are not the prettiest socks I have ever seen. I did see a co worker of my hubby wearing a blouse that they match so may give them to her.

After I posted for Sock Madness I took out the cast off and redid the cuff longer. It was only 6 rows and curled.

Here is trying to make them pretty.

This knitter tired.

Leave a comment do you...

Think these are the ugliest socks you have ever seen?
Or have you seen uglier?

Either way I am happy they are done and I get to move on.

not the ugliest but close. ;oP.

love the tulips. you didn't tell me you almost didn't get a finished picture because you left your camera on. doesn't it shut off automatically?!

for my next sock pattern, i am seriously considering major seed stitch with an after thought heel and toe. (just made up the toe!) haha
