They were fun. I definitely honed my skills, including a proper kitchener stitch. (I have always used my own made up version. The real version still looks a little sloppy on these guys, but I am blaming that on the fact that they have not been blocked.)
I will do a proper post about them when I have had a chance to take proper pictures.
Now I have to move on to the French Mark Socks, which I will admit, I am just a tad afraid of.
I have never really done color work before.
While I have chosen some really nice neutral colors to knit the proper socks out of, I am going to use some scraps and spare mini skeins I had sitting around to practice on.
The colors together remind me of the circus.
