Woo!

Woo Hoo!  My socks are officially finished!

An unfortunate number of ends are all woven in (why did I think striped socks was a good idea?).  And the socks have been blocked.  They’re lovely and finished and have grown about two sizes.  (But that’s a good thing, because I have great big man feet.)

Anyway, I don’t have a lot of insightful things to say- just that I love these socks, and love blocking socks in general.  They’re smooth and perfect and ready to go.Unfortunately, it’s about a million degrees here, so I won’t be wearing my socks any time soon.  Sigh…

What’s your favorite part of making socks?

    That’s what self-striping is for! I kid, I kid…

    I haven’t made socks in quite a while, but my absolute favorite part of knitting a sock is working the heel. From the heel flap, to the turning of the heel to the incorporating of said heel into the gusset, I love it because the heel is what makes a sock a sock.
