some finished socks

I'm feeling too glunky to create any kind of intelligent post today. I'm reduced to mindless knitting and posting about socks.
Uptown Boot Socks, from Opal 6-ply. These are comfy and warm. I was concerned that they might end up too thick or not fit comfortably because of a strangely narrow heel, but they are quite perfect.
Cat Bordhi Sky socks, from Trekking XXL. I misjudged where to start the expansion gusset, so I ran out of yarn and used some leftover Lorna's Shepherd Sock for the toes. I'm pleased with these, although they are just slightly too big. Not big enough for me to part with them, though. Sorry, mom.

And that's all I've got for you today.

Have a great weekend.

I think they are going to stretch in the wash. Sorry, Elsie :-)

P.S. Both pairs look really good!

I really like the colors in the stripy pair. Makes me want to suck it up and do some knitting. In all my spare time, ha ha.
