Ravelry tells me I started these on the fourth of January. Bit embarrassing, that. In my defense, I did go to London (can't take knitting needles on planes these days, boring) and knit a squirrel and have quite important tests (only have the results from one back, but I got a First - not so smart now, are you, chordates?) and a few assignments each week for the last month. Excuses, excuses.
But! they're finished now. And they've been nearly finished for quite some time, so it's very satisfying on that front, and they're my first ever real socks so I have a nice sense of accomplishment, and I quite rarely make anything inedible for myself, so it's a nice indulgence. Even if the cold weather has passed. They're a little big and one is slightly longer than the other, but I made socks!
See how happy and rainbowy they are? Very happy and rainbowy.
Photographing things on my laptop case instead of my bed, shaking things up! And they are quite wide and chunky, as you can see, but the best cosy socks are, so that works out alright.
The pattern can be found here. One day I will post a pattern of my own here and be very proud of myself. Perhaps people will even use it!
