Ok, maybe it's less about checking out my sexy legs (ha!), and is more about taking in all the wonder that is a project I've FINALLY completed. These are the "it's takes a year to knit a pair of socks" socks, and yes, I admit it, they're misshapen, oversized and ugly.
But to be honest, I was aiming for oversized since I wanted to make something that would replace a pair of YEAAAARS-old oversized storebought socks, which were great for wearing OVER other socks around the house during the chill of winter. And that's exactly what I'm doing with these! I'm wearing them over other socks, and they're keeping me super toasty.
Plus you have to admit two things:
- They're more exciting than just a single, solid-colored sock (and nothing against that for anyone else who makes those - I just wanted these to be a bit over-the-top).
- They're kinda cool with the toe- and heel-patches PLUS the rings around the calf. I didn't find any sort of pattern to do this - I just did it.
