Secret Pal Socks

I knit these socks for my last gift package to my secret pal.

Pattern: Apple Harvest Socks from Northern Sunshine Designs
Yarn: SnapDragon from White Willow Market
Size: 11 1/2 US shoe size
Modificatons: Casted on 84 stitches and added k1p1 to heel flap
Start: November 3, 2oo7
Finish: November 27, 2007

Sockotta Shortrows

I finally finished another pair of socks. I got stalled on the short rows so these lingered for a while. I finally decided to crack the short rowed heel code and didn't do too bad. I followed the instructions from More Sensations Socks.

First Toe-Ups

Sockotta most of the skein
32" US1/2.25mm circ needles

I did lots of first for this sock:
First short rowed heel
First toe up
First time using magic loop for socks - Instead of doing two at a time on one circ, I used two circs one on each.

November Socks

Another pair of Christmas socks finished. If only Christmas were six months away, rather than one, I might finish all the socks I'd hoped to finish.

These are Nancy Bush's Gentleman's Socks with Lozenge Pattern from Knitting Vintage Socks. The yarn is from Fearless Fibers in smoke. Needles were US size 0.
