Christmas 2007 in February 2012

If ever a pair of socks deserved a "Ta Daaaah!" it is these.
Highland Schottische Kilt Hose by Nancy Bush from Folk Socks.
Kilt Hose for Kerry
They were started way way back in November 2007, finished on the 10th February 2012, arrived in their new home today and will be off on Honeymoon to Scandinavia soon! 
Here are some shots I took before I parcelled them up (they are a little too small for me).

For two socks knit 4 years apart they aren't that bad!

There is one place they are definitely fraternal - the calf shaping - but no one is perfect...

I am so glad they are finally finished!

They are well snazzy - I love the intricate detail! Well done for finishing them.

They are quite literally the best socks ever. All the better for the anticipation and build up. Thanks Roo! Kerry X

I think they deserve a complete fanfare and possibly baton twirling to boot. :-D They're gorgeous!

Heee-euch! Toss that caber, lassie!

(I'm allowed to use stereotypes cos I'm Scottish!)

Fab, Roo! So you'll be starting another pair for yourself straightaway then?

Those are fabulous! I love the pattern and the cuff at the top!
