I finally grafted the toe of the second Flamingo sock for Ellie, and voila:
This is the first pair of socks I've knit in ages -- I'd forgotten what a crazy thing it is to knit a tube that bends at an angle! Such fun. Who on earth figured that one out? Thanks again for this great yarn, Carolyn! These little guys inspired me to buy Actual Sock Yarn for the first time in years...but more of that shopping adventure anon. I think I'm still shell-socked, er, -shocked!
