Nothing phobic about it

I am loving these socks. Loving them. The pattern was just right for this almost out of control yarn... I think the almost constant slip stitches really kept the crazy under wraps.

At least, until we hit the gusset, as can be better seen in this next pic:


Pooling. Of course. But that's what happens when you just suddenly introduce a bunch of new stitches, I guess. Still, I think the leg portion looks awesome and the gusset/foot will generally be inside shoes, right?

I still haven't decided if I can bear to give these away, although the plan is to do so, since, as the harlot so eloquently explained earlier today Christmas knitting is upon us. I'm going to try and get over it and make these a gifted pair.

Pattern is Aquaphobia
Yarn is Knit Picks Stroll Handpainted in Make Believe
Needles are US 1 dpns
Mods: Made the cuff longer (30 repeats instead of 20).

Those are gorgeous! I'd have trouble parting with them too. There's a reason I don't make many gifts... As much as I want to share, I hate giving away things I spent so much time on, lol.
