I started these socks on June 10 and made decent progress during the first month. I got all the way to the heel of the second sock before I came to a screeching halt. After a two-month hiatus, I finally finished them last weekend. And I just realized that they’ll match quite well with my Wicked sweater!
And look what I got from The Loopy Ewe!
Yup, sheep sock blockers! For the record, I don’t actually block my socks. I thought it would be neat to try using them for photography purposes only, and they definitely work well that way! I can see that blockers would be particularly helpful in photographing socks with actual designs (instead of the plain stockinette I always do). I don’t really need them, but I fell for the cute sheep!
