Pairs 1 and 2

Yea, you read it right. I'll catch up, I swear! My First Pair Ever is the one that matches:
I hated the standard cuff-down pattern from my LYS, so I made my own mock-cabled pattern instead. Never one to do anything the easy way, I decided that for my next trick I would re-create an Egyptian sock from roughly 1200 CE for a term project in my Islamic Art class, and tossed toe-up, stranding and chart-reading into the mix along with my own hand-dyed yarn. The brown sock is a felted Roman-style sock for my Roman Art term project (I'm an art history major, could you tell?), so I'm going to count these two:

as one pair since I have no intention to make the second sock for either of them. Now that I'm back to knitting for myself and finals are nearly over, I should catch up soon. I also got my financial aid refund (finally!) and a brand-spanking new job, so I've been on a bit of a sock yarn bender. Pictures are here. Now if you'll excuse me, my needles and sense of competition are calling...

You're not alone. I'm terribly behind as well. I'm just finishing my 1st for this!

Keept at it!
