FO: Azteca Socks

We interrupt this vacation review session for the following announcement: Allison has, in fact, finished some more knitting projects! The first of these is a pair o' socks made up of sock yarn leftovers.  Here are the Azteca Socks (rav link to my project page):

Yarn: Knit Picks Essential (brown), Knit Picks Stroll handpainted (blue), Cascade Heritage handpainted (pink)
Needles: US 1 (2.25 mm) dpns
Pattern: my own, possibly available for sale soon, if there's interest. I prefer the toe on the blue sock, since I had enough brown yarn at that point to continue the geometric pattern, whereas on the pink I jumped immediately into a straight-row color change.

Verdict: These took a whole lot longer than I expected them to (about 2 months!), but I think that was mainly because I had a lot of stop and start with them. In the end, I'm happy with how they turned out, and I think it was a pretty fun way to use up sock scraps.
Tomorrow, back to Maine :)

I've never used Knit Picks -- what's your opinion on the yarn? I'm hesitant to order online, but even more hesitant to dole out the cash for yarn at my LYS for big projects like sweaters! Would love you hear your thoughts!
