I knit as fast as my little fingers would let me, but I still didn't these socks finished by St. Patrick's Day. Silly school stuff - always getting in the way of perfectly good knitting time.
I finished these over the weekend, and I really like them. I'm loving the color! I've definitely been on a green kick in my personal life lately.
I can't wait to wear these socks! They feel really comfy when I model them.
(Don't you hate it that self-modeling sock pictures always make the model look like she has cankles?)
I had several comments (both in real life and on the blog) of people not thinking that these would fit around the wearer's ankles. Rest assured - they do. Honestly, I never really thought about it until so many people asked, but in pictures like this one, it really does look like there's an extremely small leg that's going to fit into the sock. However, the leg is made out of ribbing which stretches for eternity, so once you put it on, it fits perfectly!
