The socks I have to show you today have been a year in the making. Not literally but, well, sort of. You see, I wound up this yarn – Perchance to Knit Merino Sock – last year before we went on our trip to Mexico. The colors reminded me of Mexico. Or something.
Anyway. I caked the yarn and brought it with me but I never actually cast on the socks. Somehow, I just didn’t knit as much as I thought I would. I blame the tequila.
I finally started them back in February, though, and I made up my mind I would have them finished before this year’s trip. I’m just sneaking them in under the wire here, aren’t I?
They are very colorful and very soft and very nice. I love this little rainbow bit on the heel.
And I love that they remind me of Mexico even though they really shouldn’t.
Let’s hope whatever I take with me this year gets finished in a more timely manner.
