Semi-FO: First of two socks DONE!
This sock took me forever. It kept giving me fits but I finally got it working. WEEEE!
It's so pretty. I LOVE this yarn. Here's sock number one...


Number 2 is on the needles as I type. Now, back to the sticks.

Well, I had to unravel a bit twice due to a mess up on the heel and then I unraveled because I had a HUGE hole in the gusset. So, it took me longer than usual. Maybe a weekend?
