These socks first appeared on my blog in May of last year. MAY. At that point, I didn’t even know that baby number two was on his way! As of that blog post, I was three inches into the second sock. I didn’t work on the socks between Bonnaroo (which was in June) and March first. When I picked them back up, I was ready to start the heel flap and decided that finishing these simple ribbed socks would be a great project to tackle with a new baby and a toddler. I just wove in the ends today, ten months after I started them.
I mentioned in the last post that I was able to line up the stripes. I got pretty darn close to matching them perfectly. Around the heel you can see that they’re off a little, and the second sock has a little green on the tip of the toe. Luckily, that’s not too noticeable once you’re wearing them.
