I've finished! It seemed to take forever to do the leg of the second sock. I suppose I hadn't yet turned the heel last week when I was knitting on the train to the NEC but I've had to really force myself to keep knitting these this week as I've had a real bad case of 'want-to-start-something-new-itis'.
Stats for the interested. Opal Uni colour #18, knitted on 2.5mm bamboo dpns. The pattern is my own knitted toe up with a short row toe, heel flap and gusset, and a lacy rib pattern on the leg. At the top of the leg I knitted into the front and back of each stitch to give a wavy top and to make sure the cast off wasn't too tight! Okay so I cheated - want to make something of it? :-P
Now they are going to have a little lavender scented bath and then I'll have to think about how I'm going to wrap them up so they look nice and pretty for my pal.
