As I mentioned a few posts ago, my friend, Sharon gave me a bag of blue yarn that her mother had collected during her 90+ years on this planet. I just finished whipping up a pair of Arwen Slipper Socks using her mom's yarn. I'm hoping this will make a nice and poignant Christmas present to my friend.
The only modification I made was in the finishing of the toe. On the first sock I made, I just ran a strand of yarn through the stitches and tied them off. However, while I was making the second one, I realized that I'd made in error in knitting the toe so I tore out the first toe's sock and reknitted it.
