Black Opal Monstersocks

Finished Sunday 27th while watching hockey playoffs. Great fun to do even tho I finished first sock in early Feb, then had to scramble to find my notes to do 2nd sock. Printed out one of the patterns (from Color Knit) and it went walkabout and hid inside one of my copies of Spin Off, found it while looking for something else. Phew.

Finished Socks...

These socks were knit for a friend who has trouble getting socks to fit around her legs. I worked with the pattern and got it where it would fit her leg. I then decreased each inch after the ribbing until I had 48 stitches to start the heels and foot part.

I have never had anyone so happy with a pair of socks in my life...the thought that she could actually have a nice pair of hand knit socks that fit her without cutting off her circulation was just wonderful to her.

The Stoopid Socks

After finishing 5 pr for Maggie started a pair for another friend and finished first sock before realizing I had used stitch count for Maggie's socks, no way would they fit Sheila, thus the stoopid sock was born, started another sock and got down to last dec and discovered I didn't have enuff stitches on this one either, so now forever called the 'even dumber' sock. Then did Sheila's socks (counting 3 times), now have finished the second stoopid sock (will go in gift basket for Xmas 08), back on the needles now is the 'even dumber' sock, this pair will have a solid colored foot instead of patterns all the way to the toe. And I will I think keep this pair to remind me that I ain't beyond making major counting mistakes.
