I got two socks, I got two socks!

Wahoo! Mom's socks are done and just in time for Christmas.

Here are the details:
- US 2½ - 3.0 mm
Yarn - Knit Picks Imagination Hand Painted Sock Yarn

I have no idea why this took me so long but I am glad they are done so I can let myself make a pair for me. I found the dpns quite hard to use on the second sock, weird so I switched to magic loop after the heel and this went much faster for me.  For more info please see my Ravelry Project Page

We I can't stay long as I still have other gifts to finish and it's Christmas EVE!! Off to do some quilting now.

  1. Hello, Your socks look beautiful. Socks do take some time. Picking up stitches for the heel can be a challenge.

    I don't believe it is necessary to buy a holder to unravel the yarn. Get a friend to hold the skein. Also, you can place it over the back of a chair/rocking chair and roll into a ball. I'm confident you will look around your home and find something which will do the trick.

    Keep on knitting. It is a wonderful past time.
