Another handknit gift completed. As I pointed out earlier, although I can knit from a chart, this doesn't prevent me from assuming the socks are knit one way when they are in fact charted to knit in the other direction (cuff-down versus toe-up.) But I actually love the lace pointing toward the toe so it's a happy accident.
The heel is from the Anniversary Socks pattern from Favorite Socks, isn't it pretty?
I think these are my favorite socks yet. I really wish they were for me, but I hope that means that my sister will like them too. I haven't actually kept a single pair of socks for myself, (I also make bath bombs even though I don't actually take baths!) but soon I hope to have my very first pair of handknit socks.
