So, I finally finished my first pair of socks tonight. It has been a long slog, but I am happy to say they are done, they fit and it seems they are warm; because warm is what I want in this 80 degree New York weather.
I know that beauty is in the eye of the beholder and all that, but I can only say this is a pair of socks only their knitter could love; and love them I do.
Anyway, I got much much better from the start of sock one to the toe of sock two so in interest of having a good to-go project I am rolling into another pair of socks using a "Trekking pro natura" 75% wool 25% bamboo mix in the 1600 color lot. I hope they come out well because it seems that "MotherKnit" will be getting a pair of socks for her birthday or Christmas. The last time I was home she kept touching and admiring a certain sock yarn of mine. Really folks, I CAN take a hint, it just takes a while and some artful work with an anvil.
Going on a field trip tomorrow so I should have plenty of time to work on my bamboo and wool socks.
Have a good day
