Nope this post is not about a race of any kind but instead it's about socks. A few months ago, I casted on these bad boys. It was my first time working with sock yarn. I have a few skeins of them but never felt the urge to knit anything with them...not until the socks with Sarah kal. I learnt a new technique and a ton of patience. There were days when I ignored them, when the colours got on my nerves, when I didn't care for the pattern or the yarn. Don't even get me started on second sock syndrome. All in all it was worth it. I am happy that I stuck with it.
They aren't exactly identical but my mom could care less. She's just thrilled she gets another pair of socks :)
