I love how these turned out! As a matter of fact: I’m wearing them right now and they’re keeping my feet toasty warm while it’s gray and wet outside.
I love the colors! I’de never thought I’d actually wear red and orange socks but I am and it’s actually lifting my spirits despite this dreary weather we’re having.
Despite the fact that socks are quick knits these took me a much longer time than I had expected them to. It was by no means the pattern or the yarn, but life got in the way when we had to pack everything and move to another city (yay!). The new house is amazing and so is the new city. I’ll miss the old city but thankfully it’s just a 40 min drive from where we live now, so we can always visit should we really want to.
Despite it being a longer project than expected I’m really pleased with the socks and I didn’t have trouble knitting the second sock either. Come to think of it, I haven’t had any real trouble knitting the second sock for a very long time… knitting socks has become more exciting I guess. Or maybe it’s because the second sock seems easier because the pattern is already memorized by the time I get to the second sock.. hmm
The stripey pattern started out the same on the second sock but then changes as I ran out of yarn and had to grab another ball.. I still like it tho 😀
I might have to start knitting another pair for the BF in blue (or another color) but I’m not going to cast on just yet. For now I’m excited about finishing the other wip’s so I can start some new projects!
