I started these at the end of May! No reason why they have sat here for so long, except that I kept finding other things to knit, and a few times I had to untangle (and cut!) the yarn a few times, desptie having wound them into centre pull balls! My fault, I have this very annoying tendency to pull out a chunk of yarn from the centre and it invariably gets tangled. I think it's my way of showing progress, or lack of!
Now if you remmeber, I'd planned to knit these as fraternal, mis-matched socks. They are, but very nearly identical, typical!
The next pair of socks for Mr C will be put away, for birthday or Christmas gifts. These aren't my best. as Mr C observed when modelling: not a pair that could be entered into a show! Not once but at least three times I managed to pick up an extra stitch, didn't realsie for several inches, and then just dropped the extra stitch leaving a ladder! I do hope that a few cycles in the washing machine will even them out somewhat!
