I love them. LOVE. I finished these in two weeks, while working on other things, and I am super proud of them. The heels look far more awesome than my last pair of socks, and I even kitchenered a bit better (though on the second one, something weird happened and I was left with a loop I couldn’t tighten. I finally just used a scrap piece of thread to help me pull it to the inside, where it will hopefully stay). Anyway, I love them. Despite the serious pooling:
Also, they look so cute with my purple crocs:
I wore this combination around the house while packing this morning, even though it is really too hot for socks and shoes. I also had a tea date with my landlord — I live in her backyard, so she came over this morning to learn how to knit. She is a natural — was able to do a long-tail cast on after watching me cast on 3 stitches. We had a lovely visit — such a nice way to end my 2 years here. (I move out on Saturday.)
This post is harder than usual to write, not because of the content, but because I just took Boh for a run, and it is far hotter outside than I anticipated. I am working on rehydrating now — should’ve had more agua last night and this morning before our run. Also, my body is a bit sore, as I went on my first run in quite awhile on Saturday. Yay for number 2. Here’s what the dog is doing:
Ooh — and this is unrelated, but I made some color choices this weekend:
I may be leaving the Southwest, but I’m bringing its love of color with me. Hope you’re having a great 3-day weekend. I’m off to a badminton yard party for the afternoon…
I love those colors. It’s going to look really lovely. It’s cool that you have a landlord that’s letting you paint!
Cute socks, they do look so nice with your crocs. Boh looks so peaceful, snoozing after your run!
Those socks are really cute! Good job!
My goodness. I love those socks. When you let me slip one on my foot I knew at that moment that I HAD to have a pair. I may just have to use the lorna’s laces that Heather gifted me to knit a pair of Amy-inspired anklets.
Thanks for sharing your beautiful little sock with my callused, old foot momentarily.
I just happened to see your socks on Ravelry and wanted to say how cute they turned out! Good job!
