Well, I promised you a photo of my sockapal2za socks... and amazingly, not only do you get a photo of the current state of the socks, but you get a photo of them FINISHED!
Of course, now I have *plenty* of time to worry... will they fit? Did the thicker yarn throw off my gauge? The thicker yarn made for thicker socks... will my sock pal be unhappy with thick socks? Will (s)he be disappointed that she agreed to accept crocheted socks? (Not realizing the thickness is due to the yarn, not the crochet.) Should I make my sock pal a second pair of socks, in case (s)he doesn't like these? Aaack! This is where my perfectionist/worry-wart tendencies kick in. *sigh*
September 15th sure is a long way off!!!
Hey, all you sockapal2za people... if you were to receive these socks, how would you feel? Is the prettiness of the design enough to make up for the fact that they're rather thick? They'll still fit in shoes... assuming your shoes aren't already tight.
Oh... and before you ask, I used the same basic pattern (still without the extra modifications written up), yet again.
