oh, and it's valentines day too ....
and i knitted these season appropriate socks :) and i like them !
these are i heart toe-up socks by wendy johnson from her book, _socks from the toe up_. i used wendy's happy yarn. and i LOVE these socks. they, surprisingly, fit really well. i started the foot on a 2mm needle, and then switched to a 2.25mm needle just before the gusset increases. i feel like it's always a crapshoot trying to estimate the length before beginning the gusset. but, this time it worked without any ripping.
the only disappointment was that the yarn had 3 knots in it. that was a pain, because for every knot there are 2 ends to weave in.
but, all in all, the colors and pattern are perfect.
