A UFO Becomes an FO…finally!

I’m being careful; really, I am! However, I can’t sit around doing nothing but drinking wine. That’s just not good for anyone no matter how enjoyable it might be. So, I’ve been working on John’s socks a little bit at a time. By this morning, I was down to the toe (seeing as they’re cuff down socks) on both socks.

So, I finished them. John now has a new pair of socks, which I’m sure he’d be wearing already if he wasn’t snoring away in the recliner about 8 feet away from me.


Details? Well, I don’t remember what yarn it is, but I think it’s Trekking XXL. The colours sure make me think it’s Trekking. They’re a generic 72 stitch sock, with 2x2 ribbing on the cuff and stocking stitch feet. They’re made with the standard heel flap and gusset and I used 2.25 mm needles.

By the way, I realize this is the third blog post today. Can I help it that I finally have something to write about?

  1. John's socks are lovely, and I'm sure he was more than happy with them too. The look really soft.
