Double, double toil and trouble;
    Fire burn, and caldron bubble.
    Cool it with a baboon’s blood,
    Then the charm is firm and good.

Although I’m sure you want stitches that are “firm and good,” I don’t recommend blocking any socks with a baboon’s blood. If nothing else, you’d have PETA after you. However, these socks shouldn’t be too much toil or trouble. They are a bit mix-and-match as you can choose to work a complementary right and left sock, or two rights or two lefts for a matching pair. I hope you enjoy them!
