My first socks!
This past May I took a beginning sock knitting class at the Woolie Ewe. It was so much fun! We had one class a week for 3 weeks and homework in between. The socks we made were just basic socks. I did a 2x2 rib for my cuffs and then just stockinette on the foot. The yarn I used was a great hand dyed merino wool from Peru: Hacho shade 301. I used double pointed needles US 5.
(They probably need to be blocked... Haven't really figured that out yet.)
A perfect fit! Warm & comfy!
Now I'm working on my second pair in between quilting projects!! I need to put up some photos of those too!
