An Easter Egg Miracle

The Easter Egg Socks Are Finished!!!

I have been working on these socks for at least three springs, maybe longer. Earlier this year I ripped out one completed sock because it was ugly and ill-fitting. But today, at last, we have success - two, complete, almost-matching socks.

I would like to thank Trekking XXL for yarn (color 802) that, when I was much younger, caused me to say, "Oh, how cute." I would like to thank Wendy for publishing her pattern for Feather and Fan toe-up socks, which it turns out is what this yarn longed to become. And I would like to thank the Lime & Violet Sock Marathon 2007 for inspiring me, at long last, to get the darned things off the needles.

It feels so good to be done, I may read tonight instead of knitting.

Good for you! Now if I can only get the STR yarn knitted into socks instead of frogging so much.
