Well they are finally done, I have a pair of socks! I believe it took me about 2 months to finish the second (other projects going on). I used Moda Dea Sassy stripes and to tell you, I hated it!!!! It has been the worst yarn I have used, so far. But it's finally done! :cheering:

Those look great. Sorry that you didn't enjoy the yarn, but you're probably glad that you stuck with it! :D

They look great! Another one wanting to know what made the yarn so bad...especially since I have two balls of it sitting in my sock yarn pile.

Wonderful! I agree it's a shame you didn't like the yarn since the striping turned out so well!

Those came out beautiful! I didn't particularly like knitting with it either, but it does make some nice stripes. ;)

Thanks!

One of the reasons I didn't like working with it was that it frayed easily. Also there was a few spots where it was knotted.

Maybe I just was tired of working with it, who knows.
