I'm usually far better at casting on than binding off, but second sock syndrome didn't get me this time, mostly because these socks are a birthday present. Unfortunately the birthday went whooshing by and the recipient had to watch me frantically knitting the foot of the second sock on the day itself, and she had to leave without them.
This is a very poor photo of number 2 shortly before I did finish it. I'm really pleased with them.
I love the Ginkgo Socks pattern, I'm pleased with my handspun yarn, I love my home-made coathanger sock blockers and my new Nova metal needles.
They'll be in the post just as soon as they're dry, Helly.
