A good start and a finish

These are gift socks.
I’m working on some gift socks. They’ll go to my friend who is hosting my husband and me for an upcoming trip to Arizona.

I’m using Red Heart Heart & Sole, which is 70% wool and 30% nylon, doubled and 3.5mm Knit Picks interchangeable needles. I’m using Magic Loop.

I love the colors of this yarn, especially doubled. It really reminds me of the red rock canyons around Sedona. I’m hoping we’ll spend a day there.

Earlier this week I finished these blue socks, which turned out to be more cousins than twins. I got tired of the pattern I used on the first sock and switched to a beaded rib on the second one. It looks bad now, but I doubt it will be that noticeable when I’m wearing them. Either way, they’re done! I have no idea when I started these socks. I found them in a bag when I was looking for something in my sewing studio. I’ve been keeping a log of my various projects since 2009, and they’re not on any of them. I don’t know what happened, but it’s a finished project and that makes me happy!

I’m linking to Minutes for Me, Finish it Fridays and Judy's What on your Needles. Check out the creativity!

  1. Doubling that yarn makes for interesting designs in the knitting.
