Socks sung blue

By some small miracle I finished the socks for my mom just in the nick of time. Literally. I seamed the last toe about five minutes before my mom rang the doorbell (everyone came to my house for her birthday celebration). And by some even larger miracle they fit nearly perfectly.

Here is my mom modeling her hot-off-the-needles birthday socks.

I am really happy with how these socks turned out and once I plow through a few other projects, and at least one or two pairs of slightly less complicated socks on slightly larger needles in deference to my poor hands, that I will be making myself a pair of these as well. Kudos to the designer for the pattern.

Now for the gory details: I used Socketta yarn, so they are machine washable, US size 1's and the Pomatomus pattern.

Those. Socks. Are.... {deep breath} Loverly!

Wow. I was looking at making these socks, too, but have the pattern on a back burner until I'm caught up and have the "right" yarn. That second point is even more necessary after seeing yours. Loverly. {sigh}

Great job, and I'm certain that your mother loves 'em!
