After the last panicked post, I have to show you something nice.
Last year I was a member of the Rockin Sock Club (but I lost the last mailing, boo hiss for moving at the wrong time of the year and not having a forwarding address and not having told Blue Moon cos I didn't realise I didn't have all six mailings cos everything was in storage = no last mailing for me! They told me so - unless it is returned, they won't send me it. Isn't it a federal offence to throw out someone else's mail?).
So how about we look at the second last pair of socks since I can't ever show you the last 2007 pair.
Lenore, top down socks by the Yarnharlot. Pretty, isn't she? or they really.
As always I modified the pattern. See the different toes? I decided not to keep the pattern going to the toe of the second sock as I keep sticking my second toe's nail through the hole at the tip. That is probably a bad thing to do.
And the heels are different too. Do not adjust your set, cos....
Oh and the length of the socks is different cos someone didn't have the instructions with her when she knitted the heel and foot of the second sock. Ooops. But they are still pretty. And the difference in colour and yarn texture shows what happens when one sock is worn six times and machine washed a number of times (never tumbled dry though).
I started these socks when the yarn came out around Halloween. They took a long time to finish simply as a result of knitting three other pairs of Christmas socks, two hats, a face warmer/neck gaiter, a scarf and some other random stuff like travelling around the US for half of November and Canada for most of December.
It is so nice to have another "pair" of socks.
