What Madness Looks Like

Sock Madness is in full swing over on Ravelry. I've never done this before and I'm still not quite sure what I've gotten myself into, but I'm making fast progress on my first pair of socks and taking a picture each night before bed. 

Here's what I had done as of Friday morning...
The pattern calls for two fifty gram skeins of yarn, so I pulled out one of those single skeins I didn't know what to do with now that my little boys have big feet and and cast on with a solid green yarn that didn't look like it would clash too badly.  Hubby was scheduled to work a lot of overtime this week and I wanted to knit while the knitting was good. The self-striping yarn would be pretty on its own, but the dark green contrast color was a poor choice. I've got ugly Christmas sweater socks going here.

But I'm using up a single skein that wouldn't have used otherwise and learning a new toe and heel, so I'm not complaining.

The green toe doesn't look so bad in the pictures and the overall look is fascinating. Is the light colored vertical stripe a separate yarn that you carry up as you go?

Ugly is definitely a matter of opinion -- I like them! :)

I really like the solid color toes & heels!!

I agree with the others. I like them and don't think they are ugly at all.
