I finished Laura Miser's Escher socks from the book, "Knitting Socks with Handpainted Yarn". The Rowan Fine Art sock yarn was a pleasure to work with but at $30 per 100g ball, it won't be on my regular sock yarn purchase list. However it would make a great gift (hint, hint) for any occasion.
Sure enough he was the first to appear from around the final turn to the finish line. No other runners were in sight!!!
