Anni, I am so sorry to hear about your Grandfather's passing. My thoughts and prayers are with your entire family.
I just finished the second sock and they are blocking. I just love the way they turned out. I used Regia Stretch and once I was able to remember the pattern in my head the socks went so quickly. Thank you for such a lovely design. I did these socks, as I mentioned before, from the toe up and I worked the chart as written. I have special plans for these socks. I just hope the recipient will love them as much as I loved making them.
