Not Friday but still an FO

Jacobean socks

I started these in January!! These were written to be toe up with a short row heel. Yeah, well, that type of sock doesn't fit. Also, I'm not crazy about US 1 needles using the Magic Loop method. Perhaps this is why it took me two months to knit socks.

I decided to knit them cuff down and with a heel flap. They fit as socks should - snug and proper.

This is Jacobean, from the Sock Knitting Pentathlon (skp2008). The yarn is J. Knits in the colorway Los Angeles, my hometown! I love them now that they are done. I made two mistakes, but I'm not saying where.

Worth noting - they traveled with us to Canada. They get to be part of my memories from that trip too.
