Finished socks hanging out with the pumpkins. I agree with Ryan’s comment and continued the socks- wonky striping and all. That’s the hand knit quality shining through. Now I want more hand knit socks, besides my sock collection has significantly dwindled in the last few years. I think I have a tendency to knit my socks a bit to big because my feet are so wide that the final measurement around is generous for the narrower end of my platypus-shaped foot. You can see a little bit of the bunch around the straps of my shoes. Next time I’ll probably take a little off of that measurement and let the sock stretch to best fit. Extra ease and all, the socks are super cozy.
