New Socks!

I finally finished the pair of travel socks I’ve been working on for the past 2ish years! I even had them while on our honeymoon in Niagara Falls – see:

My current gift sock progress:

Progress ...

There are five socks there.  I’m not sure how many I need to make yet, maybe another two pair?  (yes, I need to vacuum.  I’ll do it on Saturday.  Okay maybe I’ll put the Roomba in there later, this is kind of embarrassing.)

Even with all the crazy…

…around here lately, I managed to finish something!  Remember these?  Well now they look like this:

FO: Isle Caribe Socks

I did a Sherman Heel – my favorite since there are virtually no holes.
