I finally picked up my knitting needles last night to finish these socks. I tried so hard to get my stripes to match but it didn't happen. I did pretty good until the heel flap and then the repeat kind of when south. Oh well, feet don't care. Next time I think I'll pull out the yarn from both skeins and put a starting mark on the second one instead of writing myself a note. Or not.
I think they turned out pretty darn cute! This is the first time I've used Red Heart Heart & Sole with Aloe (why is there aloe in the yarn???). The color is called green envy. This is the fastest pair of socks I've knitted--started on the 6th, finished on the 24th. Simple, easy pattern...........I don't need the fussiness of fancy! I'll take the happiness of simple any ole day.
If I would have worked on them at anytime at all during the last week, I'd probably have another sock half knitted! But I didn't so I don't! And because American Idol was on for 2 hours last night, I have a new hat on the needles. I'm trying real hard not to have a bunch of knitting projects started but then I see something and I go ooohhh......focus, focus Judy!
