A Finally Finished Object

I am struggling with the fact it often seems that I do not have any finished objects to show off these days. I know this is because my interests have veered off into other areas, but I am still a knitter after all! So it made me quite happy to realize that I finally had a finished pair of socks, more than a week before my mom’s arrival.

These are in her favorite basic sock pattern, Gentleman’s plain winter socks, from Vintage Socks. I made these nice and long, it was easy to do as the online sock yarn I was using is nice and thick. I love the fun bright colors on these, even though I expected them to stripe. I hope they hold up nicely for mom, since I am not knitting many socks these days.
