First X-mas present done!
I made it in the nick of time. I finished these socks on Tuesday night while watching my favorite hockey team (Wild) tank.
The socks haven't been blocked yet but I will get to that soon. I used Pagewood Farm hand dyed sock yarn (merino, bamboo & nylon) in "Prism" for the majority of the sock and Louet Gems in "Caribou" for the heel and toe with wooly nylon for added strength.
The pattern I used was the basic 4 stitch ribbing from Sensational Knitted Socks with an Openwork Rib for the pattern from the same. This was my first time using a different color for the heel and toe AND using a pattern other than ribbing. Success!
See you next month.
