My second pair of finished socks.
I love them, the toes came out a bit different but they fit the same, kind of like them a little different. Put them on this morning to take a photo and never took them off, they are very comfy.
The yarn I used is Meilenweit Scala , color 6535, by Lana Grossa. One ball was plenty, I have quite a bit left over, and I used #2 double pointed aluminum needles. Used the same pattern from Ann Budd's book.
The Aqua Melon yarn was just itching for me to start knitting with it but I resisted its call till this morning. Decided to use the same pattern again, I know so boring, but it seems I'm in the mood to make simple socks with the yarn doing all the talking. Ahh the yarn is saying " I got the colors baby not need for any of those fancy stitches". Anyways.... I actually started out using a toe up pattern, but I lost patience pretty fast, so I went back to the usual pattern.
I know , I know , I need to clean my desk.
Attempted to go Christmas shopping today. Completly failed , the crowds got the better of me, ran back home determined to do the rest of my shopping on the internet. Starbucks was okay though, had a very good latte with a couple of pumps of mocha, good good good.
