Yay! I've finally finished the socks for my sister! Yay! Here are her feet, trying them on. It didn't really take me too much time to knit them (probably no more than 2 weeks worth of knitting) but it seemed so much longer. Mostly because I stopped in the middle to work on another project. That made the total elapsed time for these socks into over 2 months. Luckily, her feet haven't grown too much to fit.

I 've learned a very important knitting lesson: When you're making up your own pattern, WRITE IT DOWN. Otherwise, it's difficult to make another one to match. It had been so long since I finished the first sock that I didn't remember exactly how to shape the toes, or how long to make them...In the picture, the socks look very similar, but trust me, I can tell the difference. (O'course, I'm not going to tell you what I did wrong. I'll just let you tell me they're perfect ;) ) Both socks fit, however, and sister is happy with them, so I just let it be. Enough is Enough! now, on to those FairIsle gloves...
