The Harlot socks are done!! Can you see me doing the happy happy sock dance? Actually the shoes aren't quite that bright and they pretty much match the turquoise in the yarn. Well, even if they didn't there are so many colors you would think they matched something.
When I die I shall probably ask that all my socks be cremated with me cause I don't want anyone to see the Kitchenering (Paris that's what 'sewing' the toe end up is called). I try and try and for every part that looks good, there's a part that looks like a kindergarten kid did it. I have good instructions, which I try to follow carefully. Sometimes that's a bit hard though when you have a good ' friend' trying to help
The real Harlot says that there is a STR color named after her now but it's not on their website. I'm wondering what it will look like. Have any of y'all knitted with STR? I'm fascinated by the colors. Are the old ones like Fire on the Mountain self striping?
Now it's time for a celebratory hot dog, and then figure out what to do with the rest of this day.
