After almost a year of WIP, I finally finished knitting these for my mom. It's the same pattern I used to make dude socks last year, which I found to be a good match for the yarn.
My parents are planning to visit me here in Toronto in mid March so I can gift them to her then. At the same time, I have just cast on another sock with the exact same pattern to make matching socks for my dad in brown. Hope I can finish on time!!
