"Groovy" January Socks

It’s only fitting that Alice, our beloved January birthday girl, models the just completed January Socks. You’ll notice that she doesn’t dare show her face because she had just gotten out of the shower and hadn’t dried her hair yet. In any case, Kudos to Alice for getting as much mileage out of her birthday as she can. ☺

I finished these socks this morning and while I’m not 100% crazy about the short row heels, I think they came out well enough. We knitters are so hard on ourselves! I’m not crazy about the holes created at the intersection of the heel to ankle but I’ll work on it. Because the pattern is so “holy”, it’s not obvious to anyone but me anyway.

The yarn is Regia, which I ordered from Yarn4Socks many moons ago and this is already my second pair. There’s a lot of mileage in those skeins. There’s even enough left for a third pair I do believe.

Now on to bigger and better things. The weather is positively dreary today but it makes for great guilt-free knitting and I’ve got about 10 projects whirling around in my head – some already on needles and some mere fantasy. I’ll report my progress soon.
