The interwebs ate my post from this morning… eyeroll, so I’m having to do a re-post. Gah!
Apologies if you’ve read this stuff before and you’re looking at it again!
Here’s Take 2…
I finished something! Say whaaat!!
Yeah, it’s true! The socks that were on my needles are done, done, done. Let’s totally not dwell on the fact that I began them ermm… last December. LOL!!
These socks are for the hubster and I had him try them on after I was done casting off the last stitch. The reaction I got from him was, “groooooaaaaan”! I’ll take that as a good sign. These are the first pair of handknit socks he has ever worn. Shame on me for taking so long to knit him a pair! But, we won’t dwell on that either.
Here they are all set for a nice long bath before they get mauled into shape.
I don’t have the right size sock blockers, but the ones I do have should work to even out the stitches and also produce a sort of sock shape. Stripes are so much fun to knit and I just love this self striping yarn. Easy peasy! I’ll share all the details about this project once they’re blocked and the tails are woven in.
Handknit socks, they are the best!!
