A couple of years ago I started a pair of socks. They were meant to be a birthday gift but I missed the deadline. And then I realized they were too small for the recipient anyway. I set them aside. And, you know how this story goes, right? I forgot all about them.
A few weeks ago I was straightening up my craft room (not well, mind you, because at the moment that room is a disaster) but in the midst of moving things around I found the socks. One was completed and one was about 25% done. And I thought, geeez, I really should finish these but they are so small and they won’t fit me and . . . who can I give them to . . . and then I thought . . . Jessica has small feet!
I had her try the finished one on that night when they came for dinner and it fit like a charm.
I haven’t finished the second one yet but I’m getting closer. Maybe by next Wednesday?
I can only hope!
Love that shade of blue! What is the yarn? The pattern is really pretty too. Good for you if you can find time to knit these days – I imagine your life will be a tad bit busier than it has been in the past!
Well I’ll just repeat my last comment…Go Carole Go! 🙂 Very pretty blue!
Lovely! And, what a lovely gift! Knit like the wind! (and maybe vacation knitting might help spur on their finish!) XO
They are so cute!
Hooray for regaining a bit of knitting time now that the campaign is over, and even more cheers for finding socks that are very near completion!
I love the yarn–color and squish (at least it looks squishy). I really wish I liked knitting socks. Maybe I’ll try again when I’m on summer vacation.
If only I would find some socks near completion. The only odd socks I find are barely started. In the future if Jessica has a full sock drawer, I have small feet. HA HA HA HA These are lovely socks.
Anytime is a good time to finish a pair of socks for someone you love!
Now that you know who they’re for, I’m guessing that last 75% will go a lot faster 🙂 (also – feeling good about my decision a few years back to quit knitting socks in fingering weight yarn!)

Ha! I am in exactly the same boat with the one pair of socks I have on the needles- soo close!
