And here it is. If there was a band around, I'd have them play.
Usually by the time the first sock is complete, I have the second sock worked past the heel. It helps me make sure the 2 socks were made the same way, the same number of stitches. (I forget easily) It lets me adjust on the fly as it were. Anyway, 1 more session and we shall have a pair.
This point, this almost complete place is my favourite time in a project. It's where you can taste the finish, and where you begin to dream of the next stitches on a new project.
My next piece is sort of a surprise. I will show it here as we go, because I am pretty sure that the intended recipient does not stitch.
