Thanks to Lori who got her vote in at the last minute, the Copenhagen shoes just edged out the Converse. Since it was going to be a tie, and I have twin daughters who each wanted to draw a name, I've decided to select two winners.
Thanks to everyone who voted. It was really fun to get all of your comments, quite a few of them gave me a good laugh.
I've decided to name the socks "Rhodie Gus" in honor of my Father. He's had a tough year health wise, and is just recently starting to feel a little better. One of the things he loves most in this world, (after my mother, his daughters and his grandchildren of course), is Rhododendrons. He has been a very active member of the American Rhododendron Society for many years, and hybridizes Rhodies, to create new varieties. The colors of the Trekking that I knit the socks in reminds me of the colors in his Rhododendrons, thus the name.
The sock pattern is in the sidebar. I'm having a little trouble with Typepad. For some reason, every time I try to put the photo up with the download link, it makes the photo huge. So, I've eliminated the photo. Just look for the "rhodie.pdf" link in the sidebar. As always, please let me know if you find any errors in the pattern, so I may fix them.
Edited to add: Silly me, Keohinani is not blogless, she writes the very enjoyable blog, Aloha and Oreos. I've linked to her above.
