You know, I have never been a sock knitter and usually think that hand-knit socks look clunky, but yours are beautiful and fit you so well! Excellent job! I like them so well I may have to change my mind entirely about knitting socks!

So cute! They really turned out well, the argyle is such a fun pattern, and I love the pink. So cheerful, when it's so gloomy outside.
