Instead of finishing a paper like I’m supposed to, I spent today finishing a pair of socks that have taken forever. Knitting them didn’t take very long, but I ran out of yarn close to the end and didn’t know what to do. I was planning to buy more of that color, but I never got around to it. They languished with my UFOs for a long time, and I picked them back up recently in a kick to finish all of my UFOs. I had a different color of the same yarn, so I just made the toe out of that. These socks are a birthday present for a friend, and luckily I’m one month early, to the day. The pattern is Waving Lace Socks from Favorite Socks that’s edited by Ann Budd and Anne Merrow, and I have had it forever and love all of the patterns. This is the first one from the book that I’ve completed, and it was a blast to knit. The socks are knit out of Jo Sharp Alpaca Silk Georgette.
