Yay!! I'm scared of knitting socks! How long did it take you?
hmmm...i'm not sure how long they took. i started the first one maybe...two months ago, and it went by pretty quickly. by the time i started the second one i was kind of bored with the pattern; i think that happens with most people. lol. so i didn't work on it very often. but all in all i would say they took maybe 4 hours to make?? actually probably more like 2 1/2 - 3. lol, sorry i'm bad at guessing. hehe. but don't be scared of trying socks! they're really not as hard as people think.
Well, none of the flaws are noticeable from the photo, so I wouldn't worry about it. I think they look great! And what a great bright blue!!
I've yet to do a heel like that, is it hard? Your socks are gorgeous, btw, the color, the subtle pattern, everything. And, I think unless you're a machine, you will always mess up a bit when making socks (I always do)
yea, you can't see any of my mistakes, yay! i just think it's funny i messed up so badly on the second toe, since it was essentially the fourth time i've don it. lol.
The heel was not hard to do at all (actually the heel/toe are done the same). This was my second pair of socks, the first i made with a heel flap and k2tog/ssk toe. i didn't even fully understand short-rows when i started these socks, i just learned as i went along! i like the way they fit better than the other ones too...i think i made the heel flap too small on my first pair
