Can you say, "Obsession?"

Yes, another Personal Footprint sock from Cat Bordhi's wonderful idea. This is from one of the skeins of yarn I received for my birthday, Autumnal Equinox. L did a great job of dyeing as the repeats don't immediately catch your eye, no striping, no pooling. I did a bit of a pattern on these. Rnd 1: K1, K2tog, YO to three sts at the end of N1, YO, K2tog, K1. Repeat on N2. Rnd 2: K even. It makes for a nice set of "racing strips" up the side of the foot.
Congratulations, Mr. President! "The Norwegian Nobel Committee lauded the change in global mood wrought by Obama's calls for peace and cooperation but recognized initiatives that have yet to bear fruit: reducing the world stock of nuclear arms, easing American conflicts with Muslim nations and strengthening the U.S. role in combating climate change. 'Only very rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama captured the world's attention and given its people hope for a better future,' said Thorbjoern Jagland, chairman of the Nobel Committee."
"And that is why I will accept this award as a call to action -- a call for all nations to confront the common challenges of the 21st century," President Barack Obama.
