I made socks!!!
Yep, plural, for the second sock was finished last night *big grin* In time for me to join in with Tami's Finished Object Friday party as well ;)
I quite like this sneak peak photo ;)
I'm really pleased with my socks, if you couldn't already tell *laughs* The second was obviously easier than the first, and I managed to graft the toe properly, without it looking all raggedy... See:
I love that the socks don't match perfectly - I mean they're the same, but the stripes are different across each foot. I know this would drive some people utterly mad, but I've never been a fan of symmetry so it works even better for me:
Look at those colours *grins* Eye-burningly awesome ;)
Here's an obligatory "on the feet" shot, even though it's kinda tough taking photos of your own feet. Boyfriend tried to help but the light was all wrong, too much sun (and there's a sentence I don't often say!)
I'm not actually wearing the socks right now (though I wish I was) because I plan to soak them in wool wash first, I've heard that it really softens them up. So, for now, I am being very patient. Not like me at all ;)
My only challenge now is to make progress on my other WIPs, rather than going and immediately casting on a new pair!!!
