They each need their Afterthought Heel and then some ends woven in, and they desperately need to be blocked. But due to their evil nature, that will not be anytime soon. I want to put them aside, start a new, happier pair of socks, and then go back and do the heels (or rather, *try* to do the heels) when I am not so sick of them. They have tried my patience more than just about any pair of socks I've ever knit, and that's saying a lot!
Stubborness made me finish them - nothing else.
That's it for now. I'll fill you in Easter and other more pleasant things in the next couple of days.
