.... on the right is the 1st sock (with pooling in the front) & on the left is the 2nd sock (with pooling in the back) - what a pity but I am happy with these socks as I love the pattern & the yarn is so nice & the socks fitted me perfectly - so I am still wearing these socks !
I did promise not to cast on another sock until I finish all the 2nd socks but I had to break my promise - I had to knit a pair for my dear husband (while he is away) who is suffering from cold feet with the low temperatures in the night - this is the 1st time that he will be wearing hand knitted socks (if he will wear them).
So I cast on during the weekend & within 5 nights, the pair of socks is done - I was amazed that these socks knitted so quickly (must be because it's plain knitting) ! I am really pleased with them as they look great. I used Opal Dreamcatchers as this was the dullest colors that I can find as hubby will not wear anything bright or colorful. The girls are wrapping them up so that it will be a surprise for hubby who is returning on Saturday from a business trip - let's hope he will wear them.
Now I will really, really ...... get back to my Hourglass Sweater which I have to finish & I promise to post pics soon !
