I started these socks in april for my mum as a belated mothers day present. I did one - ok but not brilliant. But oh my word has the second one taken a long time! The pattern was very repetitive and I wasn't keen on the "measure so many inches from the start" method, I'd much rather count rows. The second one is on the left and is the better of the two, but I am lazy and didn't want to frog the first. Never mind. It is made in Lion brand woolease thick and quick in Cranberry, and is the Country Cottage sock pattern from the lion brand website. They should be cosy for my mum as she pads around her boyfriends farm! Hope you like!
