Eternally Long Sock Project

I finally finished these socks that I started for my mom well over a year ago. Heck I got the idea for them over two years ago! Well at long last they are indeed done.

The pattern is Dogwood Trees by Karen Aida (available free on Ravelry!). I made them up in Cascade 220 and I decided to use the magic loop method which worked perfectly since the pattern divides so nicely between front and back.

More pics:

They aren't blocked yet- I actually want to pick up a set of sock blockers but I haven't gotten around to visiting a LYS to pick some up yet! I'll probably just use Woolite and flat-block them at this point.

Next up I am working on another pair of socks but a much simpler pattern: Vanilla Latte by Virginia Rose-Jeanes (love those free download patterns!).
