March challenge - down to the wire

I actually did it!! After suffering from 2nd sock syndrome all month - and sidetracking on to other projects - I crocheted 2 different socks in the past week to complete all 3 sock pairs. Ta Daa! Here is my PAIR of "In your shoes ankle socks" using Patons Kroy Socks 'Vista Sea'. This was part of a sock-a-long with my crochetedsocks Yahoo group. I also crocheted a "Classic Ribbed Cable" sock mate (pattern in Crocheted Socks by Janet Rehfeldt and Mary Jane Wood) using Swizzle sock yarn. This had been on hold since before the crochet olympics!! Completing these socks and the crochet-along socks and doing the well traveled bag were my goal for March at Yahoo crochetchallenge. I also completed the cable purse.

In addition, with my CAL gang I've been working on the Jiffy Jacket and have the back panel completed - using Caron Simply Soft 'Dark Sage'. I also started another crochet-a-long with these crazy gals and have made significant progress Seraphina Shawl using Joann's Sensation Rainbow Boucle......ain't sidetracking fun?
