Earlier I wrote that I'd like to complete a pair of socks every month for 2012. The first pair is finished. Sure I started in 2011, on December 24th, but now I have plenty of time to start on a second pair this month. The bottom line is that by the end of the year my sock stash will be smaller.
Method: Cuff down, 60 stitches, 2x2 ribbing, stocking stitch legs and feet, short row heels
Size: Lady's medium
Needles: US #0/2.0mm double points
(used my new Knitter's Pride Dreamz)
Yarn: Sandnes Garn Fabel Superwash
75% wool, 24% polyamid
50% merino woo, 50% cotton
Made for: Daughter, Jessica
Notes: One of my goals for 2012 is to complete a minimum of 1 pair of socks a month. One pair down, eleven more to go!
That is a great goal! :)
Wow, and it's not even the middle of the month. Yeah for you. The socks are lovely!
I *love* these socks. I've never used self striping yarn, but I think I'm going to go looking for some. That's a great goal too - I'm going to be trying to make something (anything, really) once a week this year. Seems like everyone I know is making crafting resolutions.
Well done - My first pair isn't finished but almost.
I like the little n°1 yellow socky !
