It’s been something I wanted to do for a long time but somehow didn’t get round to actually do. And now they’re done. I’m pleased beyond words. The entire process was a fabulous one. There’s something marvelous about seeing a sock grow on your needles, taking it’s final shape.
This is a little of what that looks like…
Right, so, these socks are nowhere near perfect. The changes between the needles are too visible to make a really ‘neat’ sock but it’s a matter of tension and it solves itself with practise. So I cannot and will not be bothered about it. They are socks. Real comfy socks. *swoon*
And they are done in Manos del Uruguay (don’t you just love fair trade yarn) in color ‘botanico’.
And to illustrate just how lovely knitting these was, I’ve started another pair. I’m the sort of girl who always has cold feet and winter tends to come by every year so a good stash of warm socks will come in handy.
