Finishing Socks Left and Right

Last week I was on vacation while my niece was visiting which left me a lot of knitting time.
I finished this pair that I had started in March. They are knit in Lorna's Laces Tahoe in a pattern that Monica designed. The design is very visible on the leg and instep so all I can show are the soles.

And on Tuesday I finished the socks in Fleece Artist
Seashore. I used the Periwinkle pattern over at straw.com. This is the 3rd pair finished for SOS2007. A comment on the yarn...I loved knitting with it, but if you look a the picture you will see that the socks look totally different. The yarn became less blue and more yellow/beige the further into the ball I got. I don't mind that this happened particularly, but I wish I would have known that was going to happen. Is this normal for this yarn?
I have also started another sock designed by Monica that I'm knitting in CTH Serengeti. No picture of that yet (but I'm almost done with the first leg). It is so pretty, I can't wait for you to see it! **picture added 8/6/07. I finished the first sock over the weekend and started the second.**
I transfered my shawl to my new needle (it is great knitting with the proper tools). I'm still plogging along on clue #3 (will I ever get done? I hope so!).
Well piffle, Blogger isn't letting me upload pictures (I'm at work so the dial-up could be the problem and not Blogger), but Flikr did. So if you would like to see the socks you can have a look there. **thank you Monica for loading the pictures for me**
That's it for now. Happy Knitting!

Stupid blogger. I was beginning to think you were crazy as I was reading. I kept thinking that there are no pictures, what is she talking about. LOL

The socks look wonderful. I love the seashore colorways.
