I started these socks a reeeaaallly long time ago when I needed something simple to knit during a conference. Approximately a year and a half later, they’re finished and keeping my toes cozy.
The yarn was a gift from my in-laws a few Christmases ago, and I have it in two other colorways as well. I’m planning on doing another pair of these socks, which are based on a percentage system for a great fit, for Sweetie (eventually…).
I’m almost embarrassed that these plain vanilla socks took so long to complete, but this was a project that I picked up when appropriate and then set down for long periods of time. That’s not necessarily a bad thing as long as it gets finished eventually. Their completion is timely, though, since I recently discovered a massive hole in my favorite pair of socks.
