Who says a very old project can't finally get finished? I amass a lot of "projects". Some people focus on one kind of art or craft. I have an attraction to lots of different things. I am a master of none of them. The yarn for these socks was bought probably before 2002, I'm guessing. I made one sock and it was WAY too tight. I frogged it (rip, rip, rip) and put it away. I pulled it out again last Fall, I think, and started again. Finally finished last night. They look a little different. That's the beauty of handmade socks, I guess. It's a fun pattern called Crusoe from Knitty. I would recommend it.
