For Me ... But Then For Someone Else
Aren't these pretty socks? These are the socks I originally started for myself for a pair of summertime-looking socks. They turned out to be really lovely. But nowhere near a size to fit me ...
So what happened? Well, I started them shortly before The Big Fall, and then didn't work on them again until the time I was recovering from my surgery. I think I was a) freaked out by my surgery, and b) not paying attention, because in the end, they were just way too small for me! Which was disappointing, but The Tim suggested they might be a lovely Christmas gift for my oldest great-niece, and therefore turned lemons into lemonade. :-)
Here are the details:
Project: Wissahickon Summer Socks
Pattern: Classic Socks for the Family, by Melinda Goodfellow (aka my go-to socks pattern)
Yarn: Black Bunny Fibers BFL Tight Twist, in the Village Green colorway
Needles: Size 1 US
Modifications: None - at least none that I was aware of making!
They are pretty, soft, and will hopefully be loved and happily worn by my great-niece.
Tonight: When Knitting Goes Bad - on Fox. :-)
Not really. But I was disappointed they didn't fit me. Not disappointed enough to rip them and re-do, though.
I'll be glad in December ...
