FO- Socks.... using Lorna's Laces
Well I have these socks and umm well I have been working on them since.... *cough cough* October *cough*....

It has taken me a long time to get these finished... I do have a valid excuse though.... my puppy. Since she has been with me (November 25) my knitting has taken a backseat. But it's well worth it.

I hope to finish these soon, as I am growing tired of them and I want to get started on my next pair.

Those look so beautiful. I've never used Lorna's laces yarn, but have longingly admired other people's projects with it. You have done such nice long cuffs on those socks - that takes some time. Hold your head high. Well done!

The color way is Purple Club. I bought the yarn last year and they were suppose to be a Christmas present for a friend last year, so instead she will get them this year. That is if I don't keep them for myself.

Those are lovely.
You will get them done soon I'm sure.
I have a pair of socks I've been working on , on and off, since January. If I just tell myself firmly to finish them I think I'd have them done in a couple of days. But I am easily distracted by other projects.
