I picked the kit up on Saturday the 10th and finished them on Monday the 12th.
Yup, I was obessed about them.
The obsession comes not from the actual product but because these socks contained a couple of things I have never used in socks.
One was the heavier wieght of yarn from traditional sock yarn. I actually had to give up my size 0 needles for some size 3s... it felt like I was using baseball bats. In addition, the duplicate stitched sheep added some bulk on the sides of the legs which I thought would feel weird but doesn't.
Here's how they turned out:
The designer is Lisa Carnahan of Lisa Knits and the yarn is Rowan's Cashsoft which is 10% Cashmire. I just machine washed them and they seemed to felt up a bit but are still wearable and comfortable.
I am knitting up a second pair usng the same weight of yarn without the duplicate stitch embellishment just to see if I can make a wearble pair of DK weight socks a second time. I'll let you know how it goes.
