Productivity in miniature

Catherine and I seem to be sharing a brain today: we're both blogging about finished mini-socks. Here are mine:

And here's what they looked like in skein/ball form:

Pattern: Kate Atherley's Training sock, but done in fingering weight yarn instead of worsted weight.
Yarn: Sweet Georgia Yarns Tough Sock, 80% superwash merino/20% nylon, 425 yds/115 gr (4 oz)
Needles: US 2/2.75 mm
Start/finish: I had 16 mini skeins to knit from, and each sock took me about 45 min once I'd memorized the pattern. According to my Ravelry project page, I started on the 23 March and finished on the 28th of March.

Comments: Kate's pattern is great, easy to follow, easy to memorize, just plain easy (and that's all good when you're in production mode!). The yarn is fabulous - no splitting of the plies at all, and the colors are glorious. Let's take a closer look, shall we?

I am finding it absolutely impossible to pick a favorite. I love them all. I want enough SGY Tough Sock to fill a bath tub so I can submerge myself in a rainbow of vibrant color. Sadly, I have to give these back to the yarn provider.

More happily, I have to start on the next batch...
