finished baudelaires

I finished my baudelaires. I love them madly so far. I haven't actually worn them in shoes, but if tomorrow is like today, I will. They feel really good on.

The only downside to this experience is that the combination of the the short yardage of the Panda Cotton (170 yards) and my large feet (size 10 with a high instep) means that I don't get very much leg on the socks. It's not a big deal, it just means I'll probably stick to toe-up with Panda Cotton to make sure I have enough.

    Those are go-geous! Maybe next time, buy an extra ball of the Panda yarn? I have the big feet (size 10 – check, wide – check, high instep – check), too, and I'm going to have to start remembering to shell out for another skein if I want the luxurious up-the-leg socks.

    Lovely socks, lovely colour! I love cotton sock yarn. I'm off to check out the pattern now – thanks for the enabling!

    The socks are lovely! And it must be so nice to be able to enjoy them yourself. It seems I'm always knitting for someone else.

    Thanks! Yep, I'll have to get three balls if I want the socks to be tall. I'm kind of okay with the short socks, though. At least they are faster to make. 😉

    Thank you, I really like them too. I enjoyed this pattern a lot. These are my first lacy socks.

    They turned out really nice! I hope they felt well in your shoes too 🙂

    Thanks! They did actually feel good in the shoes too. So yay. 🙂
