These sox are for Sandy....I knit them because I had knit everyone in my knitting group a pair.
My final obligation...I hope she likes them, 'tho they were an easy mindless knit.
Yarn:- Patons Kroy 4ply socks.
Colour:-Whitecap (Just used a few strands, for the snowflake.)
Needles:-Sz#1 and Sz#0 (for the foot)
Pattern:- just a basic sock with a 2x3 rib from the cuff to the ankle.
I did use the snowflake chart from the book "Socks*Socks*Socks" in the "Golf Socks" pattern by Dorothy S. Grubbs. Just for the heel flap.
I think this was the first book I bought when I started knitting sox.....and I don't think I've knit one thing from it. I do like the book, but..um....there are just so many patterns for sox I'm overwhelmed and when I see a different pattern I run with it!!!
I decided to cast on for a "Swallowtail Shawl" and I am starting the dreaded "nupps "next. This is my first shawl and I don't want to bore you with my reasons for never having knit a shawl. I will keep you updated with my progress...unless the shawl nupps vex me too much and it becomes a pair of sox! (HaHa)
