sock love.

as i mentioned tuesday, i finished up my socks monday night.
i failed to mention though, that when i finished them, they didn't fit!!
when i cast off the cuffs, i just used the cast off i normally use, which has almost no stretch to it at all!

i spent a bit of time on tuesday, pulling them both back and re-doing both the ribbing (i didn't like it the first time...) and the cast off using a different method...

et voila!

they fit! and they're super warm too!
they're certainly not perfect but they do the job!

now i've just got to start on the pair that i promised bb... months ago! oops!

have you finished any thing recently? have you tried to knit socks?

Good for you! They look great. I don't knit. Tried to, but just couldn't get the hang of it at all. :/ Best wishes, Tammy

Well I don't knit, but a dear friend knitted me a lovely pair of socks last year when my baby girl was born per my, they keep my feet lovely and cosy in those long days padding up and down the hospital corridors.
