I have so many WIP's going at the moment (see this post), that I am actually surprised I finish ANY right now...but there yes, they are starting to all become YAY's swiftly.
Memba when I started on the burgundy socks? I tried a different stitch for the main body of the sock too (see this post) and now they are finally done.
To tell you the truth, the picture doesn't do them justice - they look uneven and crooked here and the colour does not show as dark and rich as it really is.
They turned out to be quite expensive at £10.40 (approx $17.00) for the pair which I would NEVER, EVAH pay for shop bought socks, but I just adore to wear something that I created and they are soooooooooooo soft and snuggly.
But, my next pair are going to be knitted, as I want some thinner socks and with crocheting you only seem to be able to achieve this thick look.
I'd be interested to know - how much money would you pay for a pairs of socks?
Shop bought or handmade?
