It's knitted in Berrybliss colour of The Knittery yarn. And after watching the video a zillion times (maybe slight exaggeration) I finally mastered the long tail cast on, I think that's what it's called. It's made the top way more giving and a lot more neater and actually where my needles joined worked really well too.
Question if I may
And a silly question at that. But I do believe my socks are nearly good enough to give as gifts now. When you give your socks as gifts, I'm just wondering what presentation ideas you use, if any? (see warned you it was a silly question!) Do you just wrap them as is? Or do you have a neat way to present them, maybe with a label or in a bag or what do you do?
I'm so proud of them (having never knitted socks ever before this knitalong came up, actually never mastering dpns either) and I almost feel they deserve a bit of a fanfare, ROFL (in my mind anyway!!) so I didn't just want to wrap them in gift paper. Hence my question.
