Socks, at Last

I am very happy to have finally finished these socks (men's size 13). The pair I made before these also used the brownish/gray yarn, and I am rather tired of looking at it! These socks are for a wonderful young man, and I hope he enjoys them.

Now I'm making some purple striped socks for Liat, and believe me I appreciate the change to bright colors! I'm also working on finishing up a shawl. One of these days I'm going to post a photo of all the projects I have on the needles; there are too many of them and some have been neglected for a very long time.

I'm still playing around with my altered book and some other artsy type things. I find a lot of inspiration and ideas on Pintrest (my new addiction). I'll share some in in my next post. I hope you're all having a great week.

Love the socks! Because of the color, did you have to knit during daylight only?

Funny how the dark socks are usually what goes with more things but so not as much fun to knit.

Have a great week, also, Amy

Oh boy! Size 13? I always forget the taller the person, the bigger the feet. I'm sure he'll greatly appreciate his new socks.
Yeah! Can't see the purple ones for Liat.
