the neverending sock

Or, at least that's how it felt.

I started these socks while on vacation in March and, for awhile there, it seemed like I would never finish them. But, in reality, they've only been on the needles for about five weeks, so that's not nearly as bad as it could have been. And here's the finished product:

(It's very gray here today, so the light is not great for picture taking. These are the best I could do.)

Pattern: Slipped Stitch Rib socks, from Sensational Knitted Socks
Yarn: Regia 4fadig in an entertaining multicolored neon tweed
Needles: Inox size 2 (2.5 mm) circulars, magic loop

And here's a detail shot, showing the stitch pattern and the colors a little more clearly:

After spending all of that time trying to get these done, I have no idea what to make next!
