I got the urge a while ago to take a break from the blanket and make something small, such as socks. Then, I pulled out my sock-knitting bag and there was already a whole sock done, so I only had to make one! So I did! And here it is!
They're the nicest heathered algae green, which you really can't see in this picture. I made up the pattern myself (don't be impressed, it's really the simplest thing besides a plain vanilla sock). I learned how to do a picot cuff, which is cute, but not worth the extra work, so I probably won't use that technique again.
These are just wool, and they turned out very soft and comfortable. I really can't recommend having custom-fit socks enough. It's freaking amazing.
Now, since these were finished, I felt justified in starting another pair.
