Remember these socks? And that deadline of April 13th for finishing them?
Yeah, that came and went. But I knit and knit and knit in the car on our way to Richmond. And then I knit and knit and knit some more and finally finished them sitting on a bench by the Petersburg Battlefield. On Sunday knit I gifted them to my stepdaughter, Jessica, as a small thank you for watching the dog while we were away.
There is a lot of pooling that I’m not too crazy about but most of it gets broken up by the patterning and that’s a good thing.
I do like the way the stripes in the heels look.
And I did enjoy knitting them although I had a hard time keeping the pattern straight in my head. In any case they are done and that makes the 4th pair of socks for 2012. And that means I am right on target for my sock knitting goal for this year.
