Finally finishing some old projects-SOCKS

Besides the tank top I finally finished this pair of socks. I started these socks during the Olympics. So it almost took me a year to get them done. I don't know why I put these down!!

The yarn is heaven!! It's so soft and surprisingly warm. It's artyarns ultramerino 4. It's definitely worth the price. These socks took under 2 skeins of yarn.

The pattern is very easy. I admit I was a bit intimidated when I saw that it was lace. Lace in a sock?? C'mon sometimes I have trouble with lace just as a rectangle! And on top of that doing lace with double pointed needles. I worried for nothing because the instructions were wonderfully written and the chart was easy to read.

I wore these the other day and they felt sooo good. I now fully understand why everyone who makes/wears handmade socks love them so much. I can't wait to get more done for me.
