Yay for an FO! Despite all the stuff going on around here, it's nice to finish something.
If I don't have a sock completed by the 15th of the month, I usually cast on something quick so I can finish by the end of the month for the Sock-a-Month KAL. I know I don't "have' to finish a pair, but I've been doing it for so long (like 5 yrs) it's really a habit. (could have a worse habit you know ;)
These cabled footies fit the bill, although it still took 15 days to finish...worsted weight even. Told you it's crazy busy around here. Even with college guy gone.
Toe pic! Gotta have that one. It was nice to knit cuff down, I like a little change once in a while. I love the colors, even have a bit leftover for a little hat I think, well for a baby, not for me! I have to make sure not to use my pointy needles though...it was splitting like crazy. I've used LL worsted many times and no trouble at all. So that's why I think it's the needles in this case.
