I finished those dastardly black Flocks™! I took a photo, but it’s really hard to photograph black yarn.
I did 1×1 ribbing for 2″ for the cuff, then the leg and instep I did a 7×1 rib. The heel was done over 40 stitches and 3″ in length. I worked the foot for 9.75″ before beginning the toe decreases. The Knit Picks yarn is very soft and in looking at the label I see it’s actually a merino/nylon sock yarn. I washed & dried them and they’ve developed a little halo.
So glad to have finished them! As an antidote to the black yarn, I’ve started a pair of rainbow bright socks using the Zauberball yarn I got in Edmonton.
Because it was his birthday, Apollo also got to model the socks:
Oh, Apollo thanks everyone for their nice birthday greetings. He and Sabrina had bacon-wrapped meatloaf and mashed potatoes in addition to their regular kibble/chicken supper. No birthday cake, but I had a President’s Choice dark chocolate and almond bar in celebration. A friend stopped by for supper and some knitting afterward, so it was a good evening all around.
