Finally, here are some pictures of the socks I completed last Sept. I received the bamboo/wool blend year from Shannon the year before in the swap. She sent me beautiful pink Panda bamboo/wool blend sock yarn, and a pattern from Knit Picks. Knit Picks Aran braided socks . I used a size 1 bamboo needle dpn set. It only took me almost a year to finish!
I learned a lot about cables, turning heels, and not being able to knit these while watching or doing anything else. ;) lol They are oh so comfy and not too hot for Florida in the winter. I wore them to school (work) already on crazy sock day to show them off. They are beautiful, I think. :D Definitely not boring.
I still don't know if I will ever knit socks again! Maybe baby socks. ;)
