Knitting: mermaid socks.

I finally finished another knitting project! It's been a couple of months since that happened. This is just a pair of vanilla socks, and they took me an embarrassing amount of time to finish...even worse because they're short socks. (But I've also been working on another pair of socks and a sweater.)

I used the heel from Hermione's Everyday Socks, because it's so pretty. The yarn is from Makers Haven. She has such lovely yarn, and I like her podcast too. When I saw these two small skeins in her shop, I thought they might look good together. Overall I think they're cute, though maybe what I used for the contrasting shouldn't have been quite so variegated since the main yarn was. But I like contrasting heels and toes, and I think I'll try to do that more often.

The blue yarn was in the colorway Mermaids Lair in a 50 gram skein, and I used 41 grams of it. The contrasting was in her Cozy colorway in a 20 gram skein, which I used 11 grams of. It turns out that I could have made the socks longer, but I was afraid of running out of yarn at the time. And at least now I have leftovers for my scrap blanket. :)
