Carrie's Black Birthday Socks Finished
It's always good to have birthday socks done three weeks before the actual birthday.
I used an LED flashlight for picking up gusset stitches all the while muttering to myself that if I couldn't see to pick them up neatly, who was going to see well enough to criticise if they weren't neat.
Perfectionism won out. The stitches are neat. And I challenge anyone who thinks they're not to bring a flashlight and take a look.
