Sockapal-2-za! Finished!


Meet the Cousins...
Please click for a clearer picture!
Here they are: ta da!!
What do ya think? They will be warm and they are definitely whacky. If they don't fit, then my sock pal has unfittable feet (and I know that can't be true). But I do have a "Plan B" in the works, in case these are way too whacky for her. I've cast on for another sock in LL in a different colorway that should totally not pool (or at least be more subtle). If my sock pal *hates* these, she will have another choice...and I will wear these. because, after all, I just turned 50 and have decided that I can do what I want.
And I completed sock #1 for my mom. I am planning to post that tomorrow along with the plan B sock start. Ok. Are we good here?
At sit and knit last Friday night, the wonderful knitting teacher totally demystified the kitchener stitch for me. She taught me an easy way to graft toes, and it works wonderfully. The toes on these socks are "perfecto" and I am excited...got toes? send them my way!
On the down side, I have to go have a "stress echocardiogram" tomorrow. This is bugging me: I've done the stress EKG before and it was problematic and involved me being give nitroglycerine. I don't want to do this again, but ya know, it's part of the modern human experience, I guess. Gotta do what you gotta do. See you on the other side!

  • I think the socks look great. If we don't knit some wacky socks, then why knit socks at all??? :)

  • great socks! I'm still on sock one. (sigh) I do love the colorway on yours. The colorway is so different which makes them so unique.

    Hope things are going well with you!
