Epic Socks

Remember the UFO that I blogged about a couple of weeks ago ? The Treetop socks that my daughter started in 2009, but were left in the attic when she left for college?  I thought they were almost done – that I was ready to start the heel. Sure looked that way…

Uh, no.  The really complex patterning was done, but the leg was only a bit more than half-way finished.  I moved both socks to one long circular, because two-at-a-time is OK for me on a magic loop, but 2 circulars are too messy for me.  I kept knitting, and knitting, and knitting, until reaching the end of the chart.  Then I put got out the dpn’s and decided to finish one sock at a time.  When finished and blocked, they will come up to the knees.

Getting there.  These are really EPIC socks.  Benny likes them, too.  Wonder if Deborah is going to want them, or if I get to keep them?  Hmmm.
