And four days later...


The socks are done. I am pleased to say that these socks were super quick to knit up. I started these sock Friday night and finished them on Tuesday, that is a pretty fast sock project for me. Sheepfeet, yarn is a bit thicker than most sock yarns, so it knits up much faster. The pattern is from Socks from the Toe Up. What I love about his book is that is offers you three different toe cast-ons and three different heels for toe up socks. Which allows me to add some variation to my toe up socks. This pattern is called Serpentine and the color-way of the yarn is called Royalty. These will make a nice gift for someone special. Hubby was a bit out of sorts because he thought that it might might be a violation of our marriage vows for me to make socks for anyone other than him. He seemed to calm down when I showed him the yarn for them next pair of sock that I will be making (for him).

On another note the tiny squares blanket has also made some progress. I am know starting on my second row and still have plenty of sock yarn scraps to keep me going for at least one more row. I just love crazy quilt look of this.

Beautiful blanket! I must knit more socks so that I can wind up with a sock yarn blanket one day!
