They're finished! And they look pretty good on Dave (sexy legs, baby!) I even ripped back some of the first sock to make the foot a bit longer so it fit better. That was not easy -- the pitch-dark grey/black shade really messes with your eyes. I have to confess, I just don't love making socks. I know the Yarnmonster loves socks. Jenn seems to love socks. The Yarn Harlot loves socks. Even the guru loves socks. Everyone raves about their portability, their speed of knitting and the variety of possibilities there are in socks. But I'm sorry, I'm not hooked yet. I don't totally get the heel thing. And they don't stay up, no matter how small I make them. They just stretch out and slide down. I guess putting in an elastic would help, but I'm not up for more sewing. Maybe when I knit my next pair with the Yarnmonster's Avocado Fever flavor, I'll love them more. But for now, I'm moving on to the Rogue Hoodie (or so I keep saying) and those fall pumpkin hats!
