I haven’t talked about knitting on this blog in nearly a month. And I haven’t shown you a finished pair of socks since last year. Last year, people. That’s all about to change, though, because today I am not only going to talk about knitting but I am also going to show you a finished pair of socks.
I started them back on 12/14/13. At that time I thought they would make great holiday knitting – mindless stockinette to get me through times of waiting in line and social events and such. But the yarn pooled terribly so I ripped and restarted them with this pattern.
I’m so glad I did. The colors look great and the texture – oh the texture! – is just gorgeous.
I finished on 1/24/13 and they’ve just been hanging around, waiting to be photographed so that they can be worn. That’s unfair treatment for a pair of socks as pretty as these.
I’m going to make it up to them by taking them with me to SPA. That’ll do the trick.
