Alicia: do not read

Seriously, Leesh, don't scroll down unless you want to ruin the surprise.

You're not reading.

Are you?

OK, so for all of you who aren't my sister (which is the world's population minus one (onless one of the parents is not telling me something)), I finished the socks!

The cork did, as predicted by Jen, knit up really fast.

They require blocking. The pattern makes them slouchy, but I'm hoping I can convince them to be a little tighter.

I've decided that I am never doing socks without a pattern or stripes again. I had no difficulty making these match (I know the toes look off, but that's because I have freakishly small feet and the right one is folded a little).

I'm excited to begin my sockapalooza socks. I don't know how long I'm going to make them. I need to compare what I have with the suggested yardage.

I've been working very slowly on my top.

The top takes little concentration, but I can already tell I will not finish it soon; I like the way tops knit on smaller needles look, but I'm so impatient.

the socks look great :D

woohoo! instant gratification socks, what fun!

I think you can get regular length crew socks (stopping short of where your calf starts getting bigger) for people with non-freakishly small feet with around 300 yards of sport weight yarn, which is what I think Wool/Cotton is. For someone with your size feet, you could probably get away with closer to 200 yards for slightly shorter socks. I think you have 600 yards, so I think you should be able to get calf length socks out of what you have. Of course, you could just go for it toe up and just stop when you run out of yarn...
