Marie's socks are finished!
I love them. They make me want to sit on the couch all day and stare at my feet. Okay, I would probably still want to do that without the socks.
Here's a closeup of the stitch pattern. It makes the socks feel squishy, and even softer.
Here's one more (not-so-great) photograph from above.
This project earns me the title of "Slowest Test Knitter Ev-ah". Hear that Thea? She's enlisted me as a test knitter for her Golden Cardi (so eager was I to get my hands on this knit that I begged and pleaded until Thea relented and let me be a test knitter for her design).
I think that I'm ready for a sweater project. I am reunited with my blocking board, and (unlike Queens) I have space in which to do the blocking. We'll see how long it takes me to get to the actual blocking....
