FO: Pink and Blue Socks

I think I’m finally in love with sock knitting. They fit. They’re pretty. Did I mention that they fit?I knit the top of the cuff, the last three rounds or so, with size eight needles, to keep them from being too tight. And they’re perfect. They’re Fortissma Sock, details hereIMGP1893I started them in January, but only just finished them thanks to the wonder that is higher education. And papers. But I was determined not to be on the same project that I was one at Christmas during Spring Break, so when I took a cab up to the post office yesterday, I spent five hours at the nearby Starbucks listening to podcasts. I came out with socks!  IMGP1885They’re toe-up (of course) with a heel flap, which in my opinion is the best of both worlds.Look, this one fits too:IMGP1894It’s so nice to have an FO. I must admit I love my mostly monogamous knitting ( I have a charity hat that I work on at knitting club), but it is nice to be done with something and move on.And move on I shall since I have next to no homework this weekend. It’s all during spring break :(
