a pair of socks

I surprised myself in knitting a pair of socks recently. I have to darn a pair or three because I wear heels hard and it was just faster for me to take a pattern I had never knit before and make a new pair of socks instead. Plus the yarn had been calling to me and I really need to make a dent in this stash.

2.5mm needles

They fit perfectly. It’s been a while since I’ve knit a pair of socks and it felt good. I’m finally taking the time to patiently fix the little boo-boos I used to leave in and those are what left my knits and crochets looking amateurish.

But, don’t think I actually wove in the ends. These are for me. I haven’t yet bothered. I should state that my second pair of socks, finished two years ago, still don’t have all their ends woven in.

  2. They almost look like they lace up the front. Very cute.

  3. Very cozy looking. I envy you your small feet — hence quick knits!
