My Ekornsokkene are finished, and I'm happy. It's my first FO for the One Sock KAL.

This was a fun pattern to knit. The colorwork band on the foot was so interesting, I rotated it on the second sock to show off the entire band on the tops of the socks. Here's the two tops.

And here's the two soles. It was interesting how the jog at the end of each round distorted the X motif more than the double-eight pretzel motif.

Curiously, despite the sprightly squirrels on the legs, as the stripes progressed the socks began to remind me of woolly bear caterpillars, in a good way.

It's said woolly bear caterpillars can predict the severity of the coming winter. I can never remember precisely how, something about the thickness of their color segments. No matter, this week's weather forecast is for sweltering summer temperatures!
