what took me so long?

I finally finished these socks:

heart socks

this is falling in love. according to Ravelry, I seem to have started in July last year (!).

I have no idea what took me so long. the pattern is really pretty. as I love heart motifs, I really wanted to wear them, let alone to knit them. but somehow, these were the ones always left behind of other knits that had “higher priorities” (whatever they were). Poor sock….

here’s a full picture of them:

heart socks full

it is really pretty. I added the 2×2 ribbing cuff.

and the side:

I really like that the pattern has different choices for the heels. I chose the heel flap option (because I like heel flaps!), but there’s a short row heel option too. now I learned how to do heel flap for toe-up socks. cool.

編んでいても楽しかったし、早く履きたいとも思っていたのに、なぜかモチベーションがあがらず、完成に1年近くもかかってしまいまし た!!Ravelryの記録を見たら、編み始めたのは去年の7月だそう。感覚としては半年くらいしかほったらかしにしてなかったつもりなんだけど(苦笑) 遠くない将来に引っ越しをする予定なので、編みかけのものは編んでしまえ、との勢いでどうにか仕上がりまでこぎ着けました。

パターン自体はとてもよくできたパターンだと思います。特に、ヒールが、heel flapのバージョンと、short-rowでつくるバージョンの両方が載っていて、好きな方を選べるのが嬉しい。私は、heel flapが好きなので、こちらを選びました。

  1. Very Pretty! I like the combination of hearts and cables. O and I want to try the dutch heel (flap?) too!
