So, as I mentioned on Wednesday, the fish socks have been finished! Woot! This turns out to be perfect timing, as my viva is next Friday, so I will wear the for the first time then. Very excited about that!!!
So here they are in all their glory.
*lesigh* Socks are such a pain to photograph yourself… Ahh well. And I’m not that keen on the line caused by the heel flap…
So, these are knitted from a zauberball, with the pattern ‘Farmer McGregor’. I completed 4 and a half rounds before going for the heel, as instructed by the pattern (errata says 3 and a half rounds, but I don’t think that 4 and a half makes them ridiculosuly long. And I didn’t read the errata until after knitting, and I didn’t want to frog that much…). They are also a smidge tight, but I expect that they will loosen over time.
I also keep reminding myself why I despise doing socks cuff down…kitchener stitch is a royal PITA. Ahh well, I have a while to forget that before my next socks as I’m not (shock horror!) casting on another pair of socks immediately. I do have a pair of socks to knit for Christmas, but I’m not in any great rush to do that. More on what I’m doing instead on Sunday 😉
