I really like making socks. I really do.
It always feels like it takes forever to make socks, though. Tiny needles and thin thread does not make for an instant gratification project.
However, they are very gratifying to wear once they are done.
These bright pink beauties are heading off to Japan. They're going to a friend who was a foreign exchange student from Japan who lived with us for a year when I was in high school. We've reconnected through Facebook (one of the nice things about Facebook).
The interesting thing about these socks is that you don't see the pattern at all when they are lying flat. The pattern seems to pop when they're worn.
The only other thing I could wish for is that I could fit in the little box heading to Japan. I'm trying to figure out a way to get there, but HOLY COW is airfare expensive!
P.S. - Google translated "bright pink socks." I sure hope it turned out correctly! Who knows what embarrassing thing it just might say.
