Fire & Water: harnessing the elements




Here are the finished pics of my Fawkes socks. It was a tumultuous struggle, but I think I came out on top!  The pattern was easy enough; but the yardage scared me to death, all for not. I actually get to walk away with several leftover yards! How's that for irony!  I'm pleased, however, with the end result. I would have liked to have added a repeat or two of the lace pattern to each sock, rather than have the leftover yarn, but... on the other hand, I completed a pair of socks in only 4 freakin' days! hah! ;)

I really like those, espacially the color ! My grandma taught me knitting when I was a kid but I wasn't patient enough ;)
