This evening, while watching “A Fistful of Dollars” — which is an exact duplicate of “Yojimbo,” a samurai movie, just FYI — I finished both toes of my Thelonious socks. You can see more pictures (and details, I suppose) at the Ravelry page.
They’re lovely! They’re soft and squishy and beautiful. I wish I’d finished them in time to put them in the show, but I think I’d prefer wearing them.
The pattern got a lot of compliments as I knit them. KD (the ex’s dad, we’re tight) asked if it was a drag to knit the second sock, and I told him about the Second Sock Syndrome. He was highly amused (he’s a doctor). But these are simply lovely.
Another thing done. ^_^ Once I get the two gifts off my plate (Zodiac, Elefante) I can cast on for Icarus. Until then, I will be casting on Bayerische next for the Sockdown! February knit along.
I love these socks.
