These socks gave me hell! The first one was done in a matter of days - the other one took a month! The second and very stubborn sock just wouldn't let me have it my way. If you count the times I have been forced to frog it and then re-knit it, I must have knit this [insert appropriate adjectives of your own choice](!!!) sock a zillion times! Never ever have I knit anything that made me spew out that many very very unladylike words - but believe me, this pair of evil socks deserves every syllable!
And to Beth, who wanted these socks in the first place: sorry it took a freaking eternity! Fortunately, you'll love them way more than I do ;)
Pattern: Owl Knee-Socks dullegriet.wordpress.com
Yarn: Marks & Kattens, ECO babybomull - 100% ecological cotton, undyed
Skeins: almost 1 pr. sock
Start to finish: ... let's not go there!
For: Beth, but I fear that it's too late, since she needed them for her final exam at the design school in Kolding - poor thing.
