Valentine socks done

Finished them yesterday but they were too wet to put on and the detail wasn't showing up on the blockers. Socks are longer than I normally wear but then again after I deliever I am always cold so these will be wonderful in the hospital. I thought about wearing them during delievery but thought maybe it would be better to put them on after the baby is here to keep me warm. lol I am using one of Anni's sock yarns. I love how it feels. The pattern was quick and easy, I didn't to the opening in the back with laced up ribbon, I don't have good luck with ribbon and I don't have the legs for the long beautiful socks. lol They are a little loose so I will need to see if I can shrink them a little without felting them. Great pattern Thanks. Now do I have this baby before the next pattern comes out or after. lol I am ready now!

Nice socks! I haven't started mine yet but, like you, I will do a shorter version without the ribbon. I don't think I could pull that look off

They turned out nice. I'm starting mine tonight. We are expecting 12"-18" of snow, so I'll be snowed in a little with my socks. I plan to scale these down a little and make them for my 6 year old daughter. She will love to wear them with her skirts.

Glad you finished the socks before welcoming your new baby. Don't forget to show us a picture of the little one.

Great socks! I've just started mine, and they seem to be big, so they will fit me(usually they are too small,and go into the giftbox...)Still haven't decided what to do with the back-lacy ribbons is certainly not my style-LOL!
