This was a very tough pattern to follow, especially in the book. (I blurred out the image in respect for the designer.)
If it weren't for someone else posting the process in photos, I probably would have given up completely.
So I'm pretty proud of these socks. And I'm glad that I was able to stick with it. I learned new techniques and have already begun to master this better with the 4th sock I made (I made a pair for my husband!)
They're comfy, warm, and compel me to grab a hot cup of coffee and a good book.
