Finally, a finished pair of socks!
Pattern: Simple sock over 84 stitches w/heel flap
Yarn: Trekking - the ball band is long lost. The contrast toe is leftover Paton's Kroy.
Needles: Sz 2.25 mm ChiaGoo DPNs
Dates: Started sometime last fall, finished Sunday April 22.
Thoughts: I was really sick of the colors of these socks, so I am glad they are done! I was worried about running out of yarn, so I shortened the leg of the sock, and I still ran out of yarn! Luckily, Hubbo loves the contrast toe (yarn leftover from these socks), and wishes both socks had it. However, I was not in any mood to rip out the other toe, so he'll have to wait for his next pair.
I do love having such an excited recipient! It's a good thing I love him, as his sock yarn stash is starting to rival the size of mine! He's already chosen the yarn for his next pair, but I have to finish up some of these others first.
