Today's FO is another old one that I just got around to photographing. You might remember a few months ago I designed a pair of socks with a message on them for an anniversary present for Sam:
They look really fabulous here. However, I failed to account for the fact that the human calf is a round object rather than a flat one...
..so the message ended up getting a bit lost.
Oh well. The heart looks pretty great so from now on I think I'll just use that and not bother about the letters.
The black yarn is Sirdar Town & Country and I did not enjoy working with it at all. After the smooth and durable Opal I'm used to it felt rough and inconsistent. This was emphasised when I worked with the grey Patonyle and the black yarn in the same row - there's a marked difference in consistency. However, it appears to be wearing well so I think it might be like Moda Vera Noir in that it's horrible to work with but still wears well. I hope!
Rocking the socks Old Man Style!
