Love that Elektra! I'm past the heel on my first Elektra sock and I'm going to have to rip out the whole thing because I made it too small. Maybe I should just send it to you and they'll be done by the weekend??? :-)

I like that pattern - wondered about the yardage - did you use the new sock or the old sock? Did you change the gauge?

Beautiful! It is so cool to see what the Elektra looks like when knitted. I was about to say "knitted up", which in the case of those socks, would be accurate. Those are tall! I thought I was an outlyer with my 7" routine st st sock.

Jeez, Louise! Them'r some tall socks there, Blondie. Great job and fun to see what in the heck Elektra does. We all know that you don't sleep and are fidgety enought to knit a boatload of stuff in record time. Take a bow!
