2nd pair of socks
I've finished them . I did a short row heel, and although it was rather hard, I'm really happy with the result. It feels so much better when you wear it.


this is my last pair in acrylic. The next pair will be with real non-wooly sock yarn

well, I can't be picky with the yarn, so I have to be picky with the pattern. Because this is rather thick yarn, I was feeling a seam in my traditional heel. This is soooo much more comfortable. And it wasn't as hard as I suspected. (It's only my 2nd pair of socks, but I've knitted more difficult things)

thanks a lot. Socks aren't as difficult as they look Georgiasmama, just try it and you'll see you can do it.

We could learn a lot from crayons:some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names,
and all are different colors....
but they all exist very nicely in the same box.
