I loved reading everyone’s posts yesterday about staying cool. I got some great ideas and plan on floating in a lake as soon as possible. In the meantime, I braved the heat to take photos of these finished socks for you.
I started them on the plane on the way to Mexico – with double pointed needles, no less. The yarn is Rio De La Plata Sock Yarn and I thought it was just the yarn for a trip to Mexico – colorful and fun and entertaining. I was sure I’d finish them while we were away.
And then I worked and worked and worked on them. Seriously, I don’t think a pair of socks has ever taken me this long to finish.
I was determined to finish them by the beginning of June and that deadline came and went. And then I was determined to finish them by the beginning of July and – again – that deadline came and went.
Finally, I made up my mind that I was not taking this project to New Hampshire with me and so I buckled down and got them down on July 2nd. I’ve never been so happy to be done with a pair of socks.
