Slow Knitted Socks

Optimistically I think I started these socks during Xmas 2010, although I have a niggling feeling they may actually have been in progress since 2008!
Anyway either way I have finally finished my Pomatomus socks found in a 2005 issue of Knitty.com.
(Since taking the photo I have sewn in the ends and grafted the toe)


The photo isn't the best (maybe I'll display finished socks on my feet in future) but there is a pattern of ribbed fans and lace all over the socks, which I found surprisingly easy to do and absorbing.  The yarn is Cherry Tree Hill Supersock in Peacock.  Both socks were knitted from one skein of yarn so the differing stripe pattern is a bit unexpected but I love them anyway.

haha. I'm glad I'm not the only slow knitter. I made a pair of socks for my mom and it took me 3 winters!
You did great. I love the pattern, but I am scared of anything other than knit and purled stitches ;-)
