I was wondering if after all these years you'd like to meet.
I knit the first of these socks four years ago.
(Maybe even five, because it's kind of a blur.)
(And time flies when you're knitting other things.)
I'm not exactly sure why I didn't knit the second sock right away, because it's not like me to let a project linger like that. But I think it was the pooling. I remember struggling to get the yarn to . . . not pool so much. (I changed needles sizes, I know.) (And I'm pretty sure I re-started more than once at various places in the skein.)
So it was kind of a break-up, of sorts. I guess.
But . . . hello from the other side.
At least I can say that I've tried . . .
Two socks. Together! At last.
(Even though the pooling makes my eye twitch.)
(And now you know I'll never wear them in my shoes.*)
You can find the details here - on Ravelry.
* It was so very heartening to read your comments last week and realize I'm not the only one who doesn't like to wear hand knit socks with shoes!
