"D" for Done!

Finally, a little (completed) knitting to crow about. I finished up my second "Zia" sock last evening. I had bought a little Harrisburg from Mississippi Black Sheep in a beautiful deep periwinkle blue (with tiny flecks of a deep purple hiding in it). The vintage sock strechers that I use make the cuffs look wider than they really are but I found that they fit nicely. Living in a relatively cold climate, I tend to make my sock cuffs longer but these are perfect for cool summer nights spent by the fire outside. I can almost smell the marshmallows melting - YUM!

Many, many thanks to the lovely Zia for letting me test drive this pattern!

Well done! They look great and I really like that colour... I was hoping a shot of you wearing them, but never mind ;) - may I have permission to use your photo on my blog soon? :)

I'd love to take you up on your offer to teach me how to knit socks. Let me know where & when and I'll bring the wine!

Anytime :) Socks seem much more daunting than they really are (at least that's what I thought before I figured them out)but they sure are a lot of fun to knit
Thank you soooooo much for the lovely gift - it really made my day!
