Lessons Learned

Not only am I a slow poke knitter, I specialize in ill-fitting socks! I love the way they look and this pair was my first attempt at stranded knitting. I learned a lot and I'm happy with them even if they are unwearable.

Yarn - Regia
Needles - KnitPicks size 2 circulars
Pattern - they were going to be the Mosaic Maze socks from SKS, but I just kept going with the stripes
Method - toe-up, one at a time, Magic Loop

Awww. They're so pretty. Is there anyway you can open the toe and shorten them? I read your blog and saw that they were too long. Certainly they can be fixed. They are SO pretty.

Wow. Those look so COOL. I have no idea how you made them, but someday when I grow up, I'm going to learn. :-)

Oh my!! Gorgeous! Love the colors and how really net-o the socks look.

They are so pretty! I'm sorry that they don't fit well - that's the story of my sock-making life as well, unfortunately!
