Something I found from mother's stash

My sister ask me to knit socks to her. After that I show her some patterns I liked to knit, but nothing wasn’t good enough for her. Then I saw picture of socks, where was picture of mushroom from Super Mario. When I show that picture to my sister it was clear that I must knit socks like them in the picture.

January 27th: I started to knit first sock by casting on 56 stitches. I think that I will put blue and red stripes in the cuff.
January 29th: I almost get first sock finished but then my sister try on it and it was too tigh for her. So I had to start over.
January 31st: I finished first sock.
February 1st: I started to knit second sock.
February 2nd: I finished second sock.
February 3rd: I embroided Mario mushroom to the socks.

It was quite boring to knit these socks, but I like the result. I think that sister also like them.
I used 95 g blue yarn, 10 g red yarn, 7 g white yarn and little black yarn.
