I finished the lovely Lorna's Laces Tuscany socks just now. They're beautiful. The picture may not show the difference in the two skeins. I guess it's that slight. That's the good news. The bad news is, they're too small for me. I thought the first one was a little small and when I measured the second one before beginning the toe decreases I thought I measured correctly but I'm thinking the first sock was really stretched out from trying it on repeatedly because the second sock really is too small.

I thought the difference in the colorway between the two skeins would make them ungiftable but now looking at them together, I think not. So, someone lucky enough to have smaller feet than me will find a lovely package waiting for them when they get home. She'll be so proud. Her first hand-knit gift from me (other than a crappy washrag when I first learned how to knit).

Love you, mom.

If they don't fit the offspring, just know that my feet look like a perfect match. Cool beans...they look great. Another one checked off the list - an ACCOMPLISHMENT!
