I had my sock pattern, yarn, and needles all ready for some serious knitting all hanging out in a bag waiting for me to notice it. I decided well heck I have these Mermaid Lagoon socks ready I should just knit them on up. Once finished with the Mermaid Lagoon socks, I thought heck that was fun, I should knit another pair in this here Charybdis pattern. And I did.
The Mermaid Lagoon pattern was not particularly hard once I translated the pattern for myself. The yarn did an interesting color change from turquoise to tan made creating a cool pair of socks. My only complaint is the pattern was designed for a medium size foot and leg. My canoes and hefty calves did not love this pattern. I upped the needle size and it helped, but you know the sock could have been a little roomier.

The real problem with hand knitted socks is I have problems wearing them. They come out so perfect that my clumsy, size 11s don't deserve to wear them. Working on getting over that real soon.
