FO: Lasso socks

I don’t know about you, but if I’ve got a deadline, I much prefer to finish well in advance, instead of down to the wire.

My job is deadline driven. Unfortunately, I have to rely on input from several others to meet those deadlines. It irks me to no end when those others wait until the absolute last minute to give me that input (regardless of how much lead time we’ve had).

But at least with my crafting, I have full control. So… I give you Dave’s birthday socks. Completed almost two months in advance of his birthday!


Nothing fancy – just a simple 3-1 rib and some basic sock math. The yarn is Knit Picks Felici, and with the exception of the dyeing (it’s like the dark blue bled over the other colours leaving them dingy), it’s a pretty nice sock yarn, especially for the price. The blue-grey heels was just some random leftover I had in my sock yarn bin – it’s nice and rustic so it should hold up well on the heel.

And with these complete, I have nothing left on the needles.  I better rectify that, STAT!

    Congrats on the early finish! I’ve had Felici bleed like that too. You’d think of all places, Knit Picks would get that figured out. They still look great. Those are some wild stripes!

    Congratulations on exceeding your deadline! Love the socks and the way you did the heels. So nothing on the needles and an empty project box. Lots of opportunities.
