Going Rogue

I finished my Rogue Roses Socks from the second installment of the Rockin' Sock Club 2009. When I got my shipment I was excited because the pattern was created by no other than the Yarn Harlot. I read the dyers notes and the little blurb that Stephanie wrote about how she was inspired by the 110 year old climbing rose bush outside her bedroom window that when "rogue". I love that fact that the pattern mirrors each other it makes it easier to have a dedicated left and right sock. The colorway (called Gertrude Skein, hysterical) isn't one I would have chosen but I like it. The only problem is that the medium weight (while faster to knit) is hard on my hands.

Here are a few pictures of my new socks:
