Pussy Willow Stockings -- Done!

I completed Cat Bordhi's Pussy Willow Stockings this week. It looks like the temperatures are beginning to drop so I might get to wear them soon.

The next (and final) pair of socks in Sock Knitting Master Class are the Toe-Up Travelers, which I designed and which I still have.
Here they are a little closer up.

I was going to ask you dear readers if I had to reknit these to officially say I've knitted my way through the book. But I was worried that you might vote that I did need to knit again. I need to move on to other things, so I made the executive decision that once was enough. 
Here's my "ring of socks," representing more heels, toes, cast-ons, bind-offs, directions of knitting, and knitting techniques than I can count:
I need a bigger sock drawer!

Awesome job! It's been great following along, even for a non-sock-knitter like me. Ninaclock145

What a beautiful circle of socks. You are sure to have warm feet this winter :)

I am so jealous. I keep trying to get some socks on my needles but other projects prevail. It would be difficult to choose just one pair to make.

Wow, you are amazing! Congrats! I love all the colors and textures, just in time for the cooler temps. Beautiful!

Thank you so much for your series. I have the book, but I still have to decide which one to knit first.

Well, you doing this Circle of Socks made me buy the book - and I may have to start with the Pussy WIllows. Well done.

Congratulations on finishing! Your socks look wonderful, and I love that each has a story.

Wow! It takes me months to get a single pair knit and you did this in how many days? Seriously, these are wonderful. I try to stick to designs that don't take a lot of concentration. The time factor aside, this would never have happened in my house!Beautiful! Wear then in good health!

Oh, they are fantastic! Wish my sock drawer was filled with such beautiful socks.

All are beautiful. If your sock drawer is really too full- send a few pairs my way. I can make good use of them.

Congratulations, I tried to keep up but got lost way back when we started this KAL, truly is an amazing accomplishment! Especially for someone as busy as you are, you are an inspiration in so many ways!
