Here's my excuse as to why these socks are taking so long. :-) I wanted to do the heel and toe with a double strand of yarn and I wanted the second strand to be a solid colour. Since I am only using thrifted yarn, I had to dye the white yarn to match. Yes, that sounds like quite a reasonable excuse, doesn't it? Now, that I no longer have an excuse I guess that means that they socks should be done post-haste.
