Freshly Finished Friday

Socks...I have socks!  Socks that were started in January of 2013! And finished in February of 2015...that's a long time!  And the kicker is, I have other socks that are older and not finished...

So..may I present my H's Everyday Socks...or Hermione's Everyday Socks....in Zwerger Garn Opal Memory...
They are big....the feet aren't, but the ankles and legs are....obviously I started these before I was more comfortable...so I only made modifications by accident...except for the heel flap..I did shorten that on both socks...They need a soaking, as they are a bit scratchy..and I may throw them in to tumble dry and see if it'll shrink them up a bit....

So what have you made lately?  Go on over and hook up to these people...Wisdom Begins in Wonder, Freshly Finished Friday and Creative Friday...

I know I have socks undone older than that. I think I started them in 2005? LOL. Love the color, hope they fit better with a washing.

Great feeling to finally finish a project that was frogged for so long. They are lovely, will be so comfy!

I have a lovely solution to your sock conundrum: wear a pair of plain socks underneath. It's perfect for cold weather.

My very first pair of socks, I did 80 sts. on US #1s in 2x2 ribbing for the entire leg. They're huge. But they were handy when I had both c-sections with the boys when my feet/ankles swelled to hell. I still wear them to thump around the house. I've considered froging them and making them smaller...but I don't want to :)
