Frakking socks - The pilot

I'm about to embark on a daft challenge. I first spotted it on Google+  and after a little poking around on Ravelry found the Can't Sock it Challenge.

The aim is to knit a pair of socks over the four days of Sock Summit, a sock extravaganza taking place in Seattle, and the pattern must have been blogged by the YarnHarlot. I think I an knit a plain pair of socks over four days so have added the challenge of choosing a heavily cabled sock, Viper Pilots by GlennaC.

I was an avid watcher of the new Battlestar Galactica so found the perfect yarn to knit the socks in. It's YarnYard Clan which has great stitch definition for cables. The colourway is unnamed so I have christened it Blue Steel. I was tempted to cut the corners off my pattern print out to add to the BSG geekiness, but I couldn't be bothered.

Cast on time is 9am PST or 5pm BST. I'm itching to get going, suppose I better wind the yarn first...

Frakking socks - 1

I'll try and update my progress here over the weekend. The deadline is midnight on Sunday. Watch this space...
