They're really soft and comfortable. Even though they have those icky holes in the heels, they'll make nice slipper-socks for the holidays =)
I also finished Christina's hat a few days ago and have since received a number of rave reviews about it--all from Christina. I'm glad you like it and I'm doubly glad it keeps your head warm. But because Christina loves it so much, I was unable to photograph it, so you'll just have to guess what it looks like based on pictures from previous posts. Sorry guys.
And since both final papers are now behind me, I treated myself to starting the Torque sweater. I made some alterations to the pattern and hopefully it will fit me well. The one on the webpage fit that woman rather dumpily and I don't like sweaters that do that. So we'll see how it turns out. I'm pulling for 'well.'
If I don't update before I leave, have a wonderful vacation everyone!!
