Bad Pooling or Psychedelic Trip?

So, several months ago (middle of July-ish) I decided to knit some little socklets. I was inspired by the BMG Footies, but didn't really feel like reading a pattern. I just winged it. I obviously made a few mistakes, but they turned out pretty well, and are reasonably comfortable.

The yarn is Plymouth Happy Feet, which I had never seen until I bought this at the Stitchworks in Tulsa. It was really fun to watch as I was knitting. The individual colors are so much more vibrant than when you look at the finished project. There was a green that happened everyonceinawhile that I loved so mschool. I have a lot of long breaks in my schedule, that make great knitting time, assuming I don't have too much work to do. I had quite a uch, I almost wished the whole sock were that color. Also, there was the weirdest pooling I've ever seen in my life. I think I like it?

I knit the first sock this summer, on evening's after work. The second, I cast on while I was at school on my first day of grad few positive reactions on the several days I was sitting around knitting.

This is the first time I didn't meticulously count rows or make notes. I think I got the short row heels identical, but I'm not sure about the length of the foot. It's not noticeable even if it's not exact.

Pattern: My own, mostly
Yarn: Plymouth Happy Feet, less than one skein
Needles: US 2/ 2.75 mm.
Cast on: July 23, 2008
Cast off: September 6, 2008
No reason they took so long except that I moved, started school and had 8 other projects going in this time frame.

That's all for now.

I've done a few other things recently, so I'll update again. And I'll yell at miss ambrrr to update, cause I know she's got some good things goin'.
