Finally Finished

A lot has gone on in my life in the last two and a half years. In the yarn area I tend to put stuff for me aside to knit or crochet for other people. I decided I had to finish some of my socks that have just been sitting around. I have I think four pair in which either one sock was finished or half a leg  was worked, or maybe the toe needed finishing on the first sock to start the second. I love knitting socks. I love size 2.5mm double pointed needles. I love sock yarn. Evidence of that is in the last post. So I have little sacks of socks I have decided I need to try and get finished.

The yarn is On-Line SuperSocke 100/Afrika #990. I bought it at Shabby Sheep in Dallas several years ago. I like my stripes to match but if you look at the toes somehow they came out a little different.

I love the colors. I have no idea when I started on these socks. It was at least two and a half years ago.
I am excited to finish these up and now have pulled the next pair out of "storage" to finish. The temperature says it is 98 and I am in permanent flip flop mode, but soon hopefully we will start to have some nice days and I can't wait for that cold weather to come so I can enjoy another new pair of socks.

I have used that brand of yarn before, and I like it. Isn't it nice to have a brand new pair of socks that you made yourself? There's nothing like it. Yours are very pretty.
