Knitting the Pomatomus pattern from knitty was such fun! Well, after the pattern and I decided to be friends at last. I think it was the first sock pattern EVER that I knitted 100% according to the instructions. Thanks to my sock pals measurements.
But hey, these inch measurements freaked me out ;-) It is possible to give them in decimal code, isn't it? "7/8" ...wow... Why does this make me think of tarts rather than linear dimensions.
I had to help myself with a chart to make sure that I was on the right track!
I hope they are going to live a happy life with their new owner. Hardest part of parting with them was not having a camera. Both, for the evidence that I am not sending half knitted pairs and for taking a memory shot for myself. Hopefully, they will appear somewhere (hint: my pal owns a blog!) and I can go and visit there. And maybe
