If you didn’t know it, I have a slight obsession with the color coral. This should have been the coral themed month.
This week I finished up another pair of long awaited socks. I can’t wait to wear them all the time. The pattern is from Purl Bee, they’re called perfect fit socks and baby they weren’t kidding. These are a dream to wear. I never wanna take them off. I bought the pattern and yarn when I was in NYC a few months ago at the famed Purl Bee store in Soho. Cutest little store ever. So glad it’s not in my town or this girl would be in trouble.
I added a little cable stich in so that I didn’t get to board just knit-knit purl-purling my way though the pattern. They alternate rows every 15 rounds, but I wish I’d gone for 10, oh well. The cables also helped me to keep track of how far I had to go.

And she barly slides in with a point. I give you exhibit 1:
This is what was completed as of January 1st. I thankfully had left the toe to stich up so that it would be just under %50 complete.
I started these socks at Thanksgiving. We were at my grandpa’s and I was supposed to be knitting up these bad boys for my mom for Christmas, but of course couldn’t knit the in front of her.
Somehow I finished up most of the first sock while we were in LA. My mom’s I wrapped up Christmas Eve. What can I say, I like to keep it close to the wire.
