Wow, an actual FO!

I am happy these socks are done, but none too proud of the fact that they took me 18 months to knit! I started them to take to a Stitch 'n Pitch game (in 2008!) and made quite a bit of progress on them for a while... then they got ignored for a very long time. These are the Socks of Kindness, and I used Jojoland Melody yarn.
My first FO of 2010. Now, what to put on the needles next?

ps.... Jake was the photographer for this shot.

Yeah - GREAT socks! "Finished" definitely wipes away "delay", so don't think about it a day longer. And your toes look extra cozy next to that fire.

I just started a pair of anklets today that I hope to gift to a friend for her birthday in March. Knitting, knitting!

Very pretty! I love that they get to be toasted by the fire. l
