Hole-y cow

This week, I realized that my favorite slipper socks have very rapidly developed some serious holes on the balls of the feet.

hole-y socksI am devastated. These are my favorite socks. The yarn is perfect. The fit is perfect. They are only the second pair I had ever made, and the first pair of slipper socks. They were my final project of 2010, so they’ve had about a two-year run.

They still look fabulous on top!

I just started late last night and am already making good progress.

Now off to keep knitting and watch some Murder, She Wrote re-runs!
