This pair of socks took me 15 months to complete even though I liked the way the first one came out.... The first one was finished in the Bahamas and the second one was knit mostly on the way to/from North Carolina and I'll definitely think of both of these places when I wear them.
The second sock is knit more skillfully, except for a line where I ripped back to a mistake and misjudged my place in the pattern. Oh well. I'll (hopefully) be the only one who sees it.
I'm so glad they're done and that they fit so nicely. I should be getting lots of use out of them. :)
