The second pair of my basic, lets wing-it, toe up socks is finished and I am very happy with the results. There is nothing like a mindless basic that is easy to knit and provides instant warmth and a sense of coddling when on the feet.
The socks are the same length, the measure the same next to each other, and I do count rows. Obviously my impromptu modeling and photography skills are not up to par, but nevermind.
The yarn is by Regia. I don't remember which yarn and I don't have the label. I believe I even told someone I was using Zitron Trekking, which is completely wrong.
I haven't blocked them yet. They went on my feet immediately after binding off the last stitch and the tail is hanging out inside the cuff of the sock, I will have to take care of that later. And blocking will even out the little stitch rows, but I am happy regardless.
There's just something nice about hand-knit socks. Kind of sad it took me so long to realize that.
