FO! and How ya been?

Okay, it's been another two months since I posted. What's up with that? I don't have much to show for those two months either. Here's the sum total of what I've been doing...
click to see details I've been working on these socks for what feels like forever. I worked on them almost every day but they were slow going. This is the first time I've knit both at the same time on two cirular needles. Although progress seemed to go at half speed I didn't have to worry about second sock syndrome.

These socks will be shipped out tomorrow. They are going to a secret recipient. I'll let you know who it is in a couple of days.

I don't know which side of the stitch pattern I like the best. I was randomly polling people as I knit the cuff. I think either side could work as the right side. I'll let the recipient decide which one is inside out. Did I knit a traditional foot or a princess foot?

See that little tiny ball of yarn above the socks? That's the sum total of my leftovers. I'll send them with the socks but the only thing they'll be good for is possible repairs.

Some of the specifics are:

Yarn - 450 yds. cotton/elastic hand dyed (by moi)
Needles - 2 size 1 circular
Number of stitches in cuff - 72
gauge - 9 st/in after 1 trip through the washer and dryer
Heel - classic heel flap
Toe - short rows
Cuff and instep stitch patter - three stitches rib, three stitches moss
Started - around April 27
Finished - June 25
Recipient - TBA
