I can't believe these socks are the first project I've finished since July. During the winter I was getting two to four projects done a month plus working on two larger projects. Now just the one (and a couple others in various half done states still on the needles).

Anyway, for these I used the 'Severus Loves Lily' yarn that I got in my HP Swap box from the Odd Ducks. I was going to use it to make a scarf to go with my winter coat (which is also bright green) but the two green were slightly different hues. Instead I pulled this sock pattern (which is called, appropriately enough 'Nagini') out of my queue.

I like them. Though I don't understand why most sock patterns want you to stop mid-calf. I don't like my socks that high, and I can't imagine that it is ever attractive. But that's fine, it just means that I have a good amount of the yarn left over to do something else with -- probably some faire isle mittens.
