OMG! Two Pairs of Socks!
That's right, folks. It took me 8 months, but i finally managed to finish knitting a second pair of socks. That's a vast improvement over my last pair where it took me 4 months to knit one sock and then another 2 years to get around to finishing the second (to be fair, i knitted 2 shawls and a blanket in between socks, so i wasn't completely slacking).
Size 6US needles; 6oz/170g/315yd #4 "medium" weight acrylic yarn
Why make it easy, right? If i'm going to knit something, i might as well learn a new technique or four while i'm at it. With this pair of socks, i learned how to:
I basically watched Very Pink Knits' YouTube video to learn how to knit the toe-up socks and combined it with other bits and pieces of advice and instruction i found on the internets (cause why go with 1 set of directions when you can use 3? how can that possibly go wrong?). Then i proceeded to fuck up no less than six times before i managed to get a finished product. That sounds like fun, right? Yeah. I'm totally knitting another pair of socks.

Looks like rather advanced work - impressive.
