Chi-Town Sox

Yarn: Koigu KPPPM Color# P511
purchased the 1st time I went to Chicago although not in Chicago...I bought it on the drive home in Madison, WI
Needles: Size 2 DPN Rosewood
Started: February 23rd, Chicago at the Ritz hotel ;-) (gosh they need to clean their windows!)
Finished: April 28, 2006
Pattern: A basic sock pattern from a sock knitting class I took when I just started knitting. 1x1 rib for 13 rows and then a 3x1 rib down the leg & instep.
I continued with the 3x1 rib all the way to the end of the toe.

These socks are orange so that must count for April Project Spectrum!

I like the color. Did you use a reinforcing thread with the Koigu? When I asked someone at a LYS they said that I should if I used it for sock. What do you think?

Wow, they're gorgeous, I love the colors - you know, orange is my absolute fave color, so very spring-like and cheerful! Great work done!
