These socks have been finished for a while and I still have not given them to my sister. She knows I am making them and has seen them on my Instagram account, but we haven't made plans to get together so I can give them to her. She only lives 20 minutes from me, but we have a hard time coming up with a plan to get together.
I started working on them in mid-May when I was confined to my house with a horrible sinus infection. I got them knitted up pretty quickly because I had to pack up my sewing supplies due to all the construction going on with our house remodel.
I love the happy colors and the way the yarn makes little mini stripes as I progress.
I worked on them in the backyard while the crew was busy installing our wood floors.
When it came time to finally photograph the end result I took the socks to my favorite photo location...our backyard.They look pretty with the daisies, don't you agree?
I'm still learning and with this pair I decided I need to learn a better way to bind off when I am finished with the socks.
I thought the socks looked pretty on this mini...I'll blog about that soon too.
