I just started the socks on Saturday and didn't have suitable yarn. All my sock yarn are too striping so I was afraid that the heart would disappear.
So I went and bought yarn, not the color I would have liked but it was the least striping that I could find. Started knitting and am now on the foot of the first sock.
Guess what? This morning I found suitable yarn in my OWN house. And two different balls of yarn that I would have loved to make these socks from ... Maybe some other time.
These are going to be to big for my feet. At one point I thought that maybe I would share the socks with someone who has bigger feet, but nah - I can use them even if they are a bit big.
