I started knitting these socks (my first pair!) in March 2010. They, like my other recent knitting FOs, sat untouched for some time. I am delighted to be making progress on them again. In fact, I just turned a heel for the first time!
In this stage, I think they look like two little sock monsters. Do you see it? The markers look like eyes to me, and the opening like mouths. Very silly. I'm excited to finish these up (hopefully) soon!
