The Socks are united. On the second one, I even looked up how to put the toe together, and via the mode of chanting the instructions out loud very slowly (obviously, sock toes will forever be a solo activity for me), I did it, so it looks like a proper sock and not a sort of twisty foot bag. However, the Second Sock is noticeably, well, smaller. I think it's because I thought I was running out of wool and started panicking. I didn't run out, but the end result is a slightly smaller sock. Which is fine providing you have one slightly smaller foot.
Now the Socks are done, summer appears to be upon us and the Birkenstocks are out, so I'm not actually wearing the Socks. Oh, cruel Fates.
