Lacey Socks

I finished!  How long does it take to knit socks?  Ever been asked that one?  Of course, you have.  And there's no good answer, is there.   If I JUST knit socks... they might not take so long, but MY sock-knitting is normally saved for those moments when I'm trying to stave off boredom.  Almost NEVER at home.... until today, when I have the fire lit to start a NEW pair of socks, and yet those others... all they need is the second toe.
They are so pretty, yet I'm ready to move on, so at home, I put in the final time, about an hour and here they are:

They are a bit oddly colored, but you'll have to take that up with Kaffe Fassett!  I like them.  Very quirky with little bow on the back of the leg.  As long as the weather stays below 80º F, I'll be wearing them!

Light Fingering / 3 ply, 70% Wool, 25% Nylon, 5% Acrylic  100g/459 yards  
How long?  I cast on on June 29 (this year):  2-1/2 months.  Socks number 6 for the year.  Not many boring moments in the past 12 months, I guess.
Happy weekend!

  1. or you can set yourself a goal like this (i think i heard one of the ladies in my sister in laws knitting club did this). try and knit one pair of socks per month, photograph a pair for each month and then make a calendar for the following year...:)


Go ahead! Tell me what's on your mind.
