Finished: Hedera Socks!
It only took three years...but my Hederas are finally done! I can't believe these have been ufos for so long, when I first started them in 2007 I hadn't been knitting for very long so the lace kind of made my brain explode. Over the past three years I would pick up the second sock once a year or maybe every six months and knit a round or two - gee, I wonder why they took so long to finish! A few days ago, I pulled them out of my knitting bag and decided they had to be done NOW. I got a good chunk done during knit night and finished them up last night. I'm so relieved to have one less unfinished project to mock me!
The pattern is Hedera by Cookie A. and it's from the Spring 2006 issue of Knitty. The yarn is two skeins of Crystal Palace's Maizy in the Hot Feet colorway. I really love the color, but the red bits in the yarn dyed my fingers when I worked on these, kind of annoying! I'll definitely won't be washing these with white clothes :)
So do you guys have any projects that just never seem to get finished?
p.s. thanks for all the sweet comments on my last post, guys!
