Crusoe from knitty.com

I finished another pair of socks today. This pair was intended for me but the pattern wound up being so much tighter than I expected that the socks are actually too tight for my comfort. The pattern is Cursoe from knitty.com and they have found a good home with a co-worker who very graciously volunteered to take the socks off my hands.

The co-worker can't wait to get the socks home. The weatherman predicted some really cold overnight temperatures and she's looking forward to the socks keeping her feet nice and toasty.

well at least they're purty. Sometimes you make me wish I would get more into knitting ... but ... no. :o)

Very pretty. I'm sorry you can't wear them, but it's great you found someone to enjoy all that hard work.

I did rather like these socks. Color and pattern. Oh, well. I've already got another pair on the needles.
